      The Heckscher-Ohlin (H-O Model) is a general equilibrium mathematical model of international trade, developed by Ell Heckscher and Bertil Ohlin at the Stockholm School of Economics.

Ohlin did indeed have a view of international trade that not only gave a surprisingly important role to increasing returns (surprising because in Samuelsonian translation that role disappeared), but also one that suggested a sort of "unified field theory" of factor-based and scale-based trade that is a

The role of increasing returns to scale in urban and regional production as opposed to their role in international trade is discussed.

Factor mobility may involve the movement of factors between firms within an industry, as when one steel plant closes but sells its production equipment to another steel   Factor mobility measures the extent to which factor inputs such as land, labour and capital can easily switch between alternative uses with no loss of efficiency.

We show that factor mobility introduces quantitatively relevant differences in the counterfactual predictions of constant and increasing returns to scale. Indeed, even if the broader conditions for factor price equalization (e.g., identical technologies with constant returns to scale) and, consequently trade in goods alone (without factor mobility) is not sufficient to achieve full international economic integration, a focus on natural and artificial barriers to trade is still important in   usually emphasize comparative advantage, increasing returns to scale, and consumer love of variety, but pay relatively little attention to the firms that actually drive trade flows.
