报告题目:Decentralized Industrial Policy

摘要:Many industrial policies were enacted by local governments. Decentralizing government intervention can undermine industrial policies if the local and aggregate welfares are mis- aligned. In this paper, we extend the closed-economy analysis in Liu (2019) to a multi-region setting with inter-regional trade and input-output linkages. We derive sufficient statistics for the regional and aggregate welfare impacts of industrial policy. Using China’s cross-province input-output table, we show there is significant divergence between the incentives of the central and a provincial government: while the nation may benefit from promoting upstream sectors, regional economies benefit from “import substitution” policies that improve terms-of-trade but may harm the nation. Our central and local sufficient statistics predict policies enacted by the respective governments. The predictive power for local industrial policies improves in the regions with more fiscal autonomy. Adopting industrial policies aligned with central sufficient statistics can double the aggregate welfare gain by industrial policies aligned with local sufficient statistics.
