讲座主题:GDP Competition and Earnings Management: Evidence from China

 

摘要:This paper examines whether incentives created by the focus of regional macroeconomic performance can affect the extent of micro accrual-based and real earnings management activities. We study two kinds of Chinese GDP competition in which the listed firms withstand strong pressure from local governments to manage earnings in order to meet the economic development objectives. We find that the nationwide GDP competition has significant impact on real earnings management and adjacent-wide GDP competition has significant impact on accrual-based earnings management practices, but only for SOEs. Real earnings management dominates the choice of earnings management under the combination of the two kinds of competitions which indicates that the real earnings management is the first choice until the real activities cannot help to meet the GDP objectives. Further, we find that the probability of promotion is lower for those provincial leaders driving firms to take accrual-based earnings management to promote economic growth than real earnings management. We also take different GDP competition measures into consideration which provides similar results. Our empirical findings strongly suggest that the GDP competition accounts for a significant portion of earnings management in China’s listed firms.
