Economics Seminar

Do College Graduates Serving as Village Officials Help Rural China? Prof Guojun He, HKUST
Date 29.10.2014
Time 3:30pm - 5:00pm

This study evaluates the impacts of the “College Graduates Village Officials” (CGVOs) on rural households' welfare in China. We find that the college graduates who serve as village officials have no impact on rural households' income and income structure. However, the CGVOs help the poor households in the rural areas by promoting and enforcing the central government's pro-poor policies. More poor households are subsidized and more dilapidated houses are renovated in villages with CGVOs.

Economics Seminar

Crony Capitalism with Chinese Characteristics Prof Michael Song, University of Chicago
Date 31.10.2014

We propose three key features of Chinese capitalism as the institutional foundation of the fast-growing economy of China over the last two decades. First, local governments, instead of the central government, utilize political and economic powers to support the businesses connected to them (i.e., cronies) regardless of ownership. Second, there are implicit arrangements that political leaders will benefit personally from the success of their cronies. Third, thousands of local governments are doing the same practice and competing with each other. These characteristics explain the presence of local "crony capitalists" in each locality, the bias in the provision of public goods towards those benefiting local businesses instead of households, high profit rates and high growth rates among the favored firms, and a biased concentration towards exports.
