During the period 1967-1983 Japan`s pattern of specialization is found to have changed dramatically with Japan shifting from specialization in unskilled labor intensive goods to human capital intensive products while its comparative disadvantage increased in natural resources intensive products. The United Slates maintained its specialization in physical capital and human capital intensive goods while increasing its comparative advantage in natural resource intensive products.
