讲座主题: Disclosure for PromotionThe Political Determinants of Government Disclosure in China

 

摘要: This paper investigates the incentives of government voluntary disclosures on financial information from the perspective of political promotion. We find that: 1) governors significantly improve the disclosure quality of financial information when he is facing opportunities for promotion, especially in provinces with better performance and for governors without clear connection to the central governments. Our findings are robust to alternative measures and addressing endogeneity. 2) Plausible reasons of high disclosures quality are highlighting economic performance and making up the lack of political connections. 3) We further show that both prosecuted deputy governor and regular/unexpected promotion affect incentives of disclosure. 4) In addition, disclosure quality improves governors’ promotion possibility and the level of media coverage. Overall, this paper reveals the micro-mechanism of the real effects of officials’ promotion incentive on the quality disclosure of public sectors, thus providing new explain for the reason the official voluntarily disclose financial information to the public in authoritarian regime and contributing to the public accountability literature.
