Shoots, interviews, thoughts, and other inspirational creative content. This trip was unlike any of my previous travels for a variety of reasons, which I will get into in a bit.

Using proprietary data from the China Development Bank CDBthis paper examines the effects of government credit on firm activities. Tracing the effects of government credit across different levels of the supply chain, I find that CDB industrial loans to state-owned enterprises SOEs crowd out private firms in the same industry but crowd in private firms in downstream industries.
Moreover, CDB infrastructure loans crowd in private firms. I use exogenous timing of municipal politicians' turnover as an instrument for CDB credit flows. We analyze the supply side of credit card markets, and the pricing and marketing strategies of issuers. First, card issuers target less-educated customers with more steeply back-loaded and hidden fees e.
Second, issuers use rewards programs to screen for unobservable borrower types.
Finally, we use increases in state-level unemployment insurance UI as positive shocks to creditworthiness and show that issuers rely more on back-loaded hidden fees when UI increases, especially for less-educated customers.
This result documents a novel trade-off: Subnational Debt of China: Policy and commercial banks, both of which are state owned, are the main financiers of local governments.
We find that notwithstanding their prevalent nonprofit goal of raising social welfare, policy loans perform remarkably better than commercial loans. Our findings suggest that career concerns of politicians can serve as a discipline on government borrowers.
Rise of Bank Competition: The incumbent state-owned banks do not respond much to the deregulation. These positive effects on loan terms and firm activities are more pronounced for private firms than state-owned enterprises SOEs.
Using one billion observations on the locations of bank branches and firms in China, we find strong evidence of a novel U-shaped relationship between lender-borrower distance and soft information. Lending intensities decrease with distance within a short range but increase with distance beyond that.
Distant borrowers have fewer explicit third-party loan guarantees but provide more implicit guarantees from their connected firms that borrow from the same bank. This firm network facilitates lenders to obtain soft information and manage risks. The default ratios are significantly lower for firms that are either nearby or distant from the lending bank branches.
Banks can predict the delinquency more accurately for the firms in either short or long distance. Evidence from China Abstract: This paper investigates how local politicians affect privatization implementations and the outcomes in China.
I find that older local politicians with higher education and working experience in state-owned enterprises SOEs tend to do more privatizations. Thisleads to worse outcomes of privatizations conducted by these powerful local politicians. This paper investigates the economic and political determinants of the recent anti-corruption campaign in China.
We find that the targets of anti-corruption investigations and the timing are strategically chosen. The connection to highly ranked politicians i.
Using the balanced monthly panel for over households and 13 years of the Townsend Thai data, we find that the large initial gap in wealth and ROA has been narrowing dramatically.
Saving and borrowing of the relatively poor households with high productivity business activities have been high. Transfers gifts among households also play a role, not only in smoothing consumption, but also in funding investment; correlations between transfer and lagged ROA are significantly positive.
We find that for the households in the lowest quartile of initial wealth, arguable the most constrained and the most risk averse, the costly state verification regime dominates simple constrained borrowing and the other regimes.
There are hints that the village fund intervention of may have played a role, as a savings only regime dominated in early years before that intervention and the level of borrowing increased afterwards.The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (Hong Kong SAR) is a former British colony, located in Southeast China.
