It is show that, as long as the economy remains incompletely specialised, international factor mobility must raise the cost of protection. This result is illustrated in the context of the specific-factors and Heckscher-Ohlin models. In addition, its relationship to earlier work on immiserising captial inflows on negative shadow prices for factors of production is examined, which allows us to synthesise a number of recent results within a common framework.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
