The focus on wages, either relative or in levels, as the primary domestic labor market outcome can be explained as a derivative of the Stolper–Samuelson theorem: in a two-factor, two-good model, trade liberalization changes the relative price of goods, leading to an increase in the real return to the factor used intensively in the production of that good and a decrease in the real return to the other factor.
