New Zealand Trade Consortium Working Paper 3
International trade protectionism is frequently supported on the assumption that importables provide more jobs for unskilled labour than does the exportable sector. This contention is questioned here by reference to the factor intensity of New Zealand trade. Exportables are found to be more intensive in the use of unqualified labour services, especially females. The paper examines these issues before and after the recent reforms with their associated trade changes and analyses these effects on the sectoral employment of labour, capital and land.
