1), with pà satisfying Eq. (5). Using the definition of R, Equation (1) can be written as R=y l1S =l2S l1N =l2N R ð7Þ We are interested in the case where South does not have a latent comparative advantage in good 2, or l1S =l2S > l1N =l2N ð8Þ In this case, the LHS inequality in Eq. (7) is always satisfied (given Eq. 6), while the RHS inequality, which is necessary for specialization in good 2 to be an equilibrium, is satisfied if R > CA, where CA  (l1S/l2S)/(l1N/l2N) is a measure of comparative advantage in South in good 1.
