Abstract:     
This paper explores whether there is sufficient lumpiness or heterogeneity in the relative endowments (capital, labor, and skills) of the regions of China to affect China's specialization and trade patterns. It does so using both the lens condition to identify the violation of factor price equalization across regions, and direct evidence on regional trade and specialization. The results are sensitive to the level of regional aggregation. The paper concludes, however, that China was sufficiently lumpy as recently as 2004 to affect its pattern of international trade.
