  题目:Political Distortions and Infrastructure Networks in China: A Quantitative Spatial Equilibrium Analysis

  摘要:

  We analyze how politicians' birthplaces affect the allocation of transport infrastructure in China. Based on a general equilibrium trade model and topographical features, we first design the approximately optimal highway network and then test whether deviations between the optimal and actual highway networks can be explained by the birthplaces of high-ranking Chinese officials. Exploiting the timing of the road project and of the politicians' appointments, we show that counties that are birthplaces of politicians who were in office during the planning or implementation phases of the highway network are more likely to be closer to the actual network compared to the optimal network. We combine the reduced form estimates with the general equilibrium model to construct counterfactual networks that allow us to quantify the contribution of the political distortion.
