摘要: 

Historically, economic activities are organized around certain ideology. We investigate the impact of politicians’ ideology on corporate policies by exploring a unique setting of ideological change in China from Mao to Deng around the economic reform in 1978 in a regression discontinuity framework. We find that the age discontinuity of politicians around 18 years old in 1978 who already joined or would shortly join the Communist Party of China (CPC), and later became municipal paramount leaders, has a long-lasting effect of contemporary firm- and city-level policies. Specially, firms in cities with mayors joining CPC under the ideological regime of Mao have more social contributions, lower within-firm pay inequality, and less internationalization than those under Deng’s regime. These effects are stronger in firms with political connections, in non-state-owned enterprises, and in regions that are more market-oriented and were not “revolutionary bases”. We also find evidence that ideology-induced corporate policy biases have some impact on firm performance.
