Effective Factor endowment (有效要素禀赋)

Effective factor endowment (有效要素禀赋 yǒuxiào yàosù bǐngfù) refers to the quantity of various factors of production (including land, labor, capital and Entrepreneurship) owned by a country and used for production and manufacturing. If the supply of a certain factor in a country’s factor endowment is greater than that of the same factor in other countries, and the price is relatively lower than that of the same factor in other countries, the factor in that country is relatively abundant, and vice versa.

  • 有效 (yǒuxiào) derives from

 (yǒu) as in own (拥有 yōngyǒu) or useful (有用 yǒuyòng);  (xiào) as in effect (效果 xiàoguǒ), efficiency (效率 xiàolǜ) or effectless (无效 wúxiào).
