讲座主要内容

This paper investigates how political connection affects market response to the land transaction using a matched database of land transaction and Chinese listed companies. Our empirical results based on event study shows that land transactions by politically connected firms lead to negative short-run stock market performance. To deal with the endogeneity issue, using Xi’s anti-corruption campaign as a natural experiment, we employ a difference-in-difference approach and get consistent results. Finally, we show that the negative market response can be explained by uncertainty associated with corruption or investment and operation inefficiency due to land transaction by politically connected firms.
