In a recent letter in this journal Urata (1979) found an unexpected, positive, and significant association between price-cost margins and import to domestic shipment ratio for the U.S. textile and apparel industries. In the present letter a theoretical explanation for this phenomenon is presented by extending a conjectural variation oligopoly model.
