讲座题目:Hybrid Contracts, Multitasking, and Incentives: Theory and Evidence from China's Air Pollution Controls
讲座摘要:This paper examines how local Chinese officials respond to hybrid contracts (i.e., minimum air pollution control targets together with high-powered promotion incentives for economic growth), and make trade-offs between economic development and environmental protection. Using a novel prefecture-day level dataset on air quality and applying a regression discontinuity design, we find strong evidence that air quality tends to improve when the air quality target is doomed to fail, but deteriorates significantly after the early fulfillment of the target is guaranteed. These responses are mainly driven by ``outsiders'' – local officials who had no previous working experience in the locality and probably valued the local environment less. We also find evidence that for those cities facing a higher pressure of local economic development, the improvement in air quality performance after doomed failure will be weakened while the deterioration in air quality performance after early fulfillment will be more severe. We build a simple theoretical model to rationalize these key findings. Our study sheds light on how minimum air quality targets have functioned in China’s context and highlights the role of minimum performance targets in balancing efforts at environmental protection and economic development.
