Factor Mobility

Factor mobility measures the extent to which factor inputs such as land, labour and capital can easily switch between alternative uses with no loss of efficiency. There are two main types of factor immobility both of which are causes of market failure:

  • Occupational immobility - barriers to moving easily between jobs.
  • Geographical immobility – barriers to changing location to get a new job.
