Hayek, Local Information, and Commanding Heights: Decentralizing State-Owned Enterprises in China

TimeMarch 30, 2017 (Thursday) 10:00am -11:30am

Location: Zhifuxuan Conference Room, National School of Development, Peking U.

Speaker: Lixing Li(李力行), Associate Professor, National School of Development, Peking University.

 

Abstract

Hayek (1945) argues that local information is a key to understanding the efficiency of alternative economic systems and whether production should be centralized or decentralized. The Chinese experience of decentralizing SOEs confirms this insight: when the distance to the government is farther, the SOE is more likely to be decentralized, and this distance-decentralization link is more pronounced with higher communication costs and greater firm-performance heterogeneity. However, when the Chinese central government oversees SOEs in strategic industries, the distance-decentralization link is muted. We also consider alternative agency-cost-based explanations, and do not find much support.
