According to O’Rourke and Williamson (1999) and Williamson (1996) this reflected the operation of classical trade theory. Both factor flows and goods flows fostered factor price equalization. Most of the convergence in real wages (70%) is explained by factor movements, especially by labor mobility, (with mobile capital as a minor player); the rest (30%) according to the Hecksher-Ohlin theorem, by international trade. These forces had important effects on the distribution of income. The massive migrations in the 1870-1914 period reduced the returns to land owners in the land scarce, labor abundant countries of Europe and at the same time worsened the income distribution in the countries of New Settlement, as unskilled immigrants competed with more established workers for jobs.
