题目:Expectation of Power, Protective Umbrella, Or Both: Investigating the Heterogeneous Effect of Power on Provincial Investment in China

摘要:

The literature suggests that leaders reallocate resources to loyal supporters, or at least competent ones that can help them stay in power. However, existing empirical work fails to distinguish between economic actors anticipating the rise of a leader and thus allocating resources to best take advantage of the new political reality and resource reallocation conducted by the dictator himself. Much of what we may observe as the dictator’s action may well be the result of rational expectation by investors. Existing works have not been able to distinguish between these two mechanisms. We take advantage of the time disparity between a clear sign of the president obtaining the nomination to become the next leader of China and his assumption to power as the secretary general of the Chinese Communist Party to investigate this issue. Prior to his formal assumption to the head of the party, the president did not have formal authorities to reallocate resources to localities which he may favor.  Reallocation of resources prior to his formal appointment, especially in the highly competitive real estate market, likely was driven by the anticipation of firms and local officials to his assumption to power. In contrast, reallocation of investment after his assumption to power, especially state-driven investment, may be driven by his or his close associates’ reallocation of resources to their close associates. We investigate the heterogeneous impact of expectation and factional advantages on provincial patterns of real estate and infrastructure investment.
