报告论文一:

Export Liberalization and Domestic Policy Distortion: Evidence from VAT Rate Dispersion around China'sWTOAccession

主讲人:陈晓平,南洋理工大学助理教授

讲座内容:

Tax policies are implemented with significant degree of distortion across firms. Using data on Chinese firms' value-added tax (VAT) payment, we empirically investigate whether export liberalization affects the within-industry VAT rate dispersion across firms, a direct measure of distortion. Adopting the trade policy uncertainty (TPU) shock upon China's WTO accession as the identification strategy, we use a difference-in-difference approach to show that export liberalization through the removal of TPU significantly decreases the within-industry VAT rate dispersion. This result remains significant throughout a series of robustness checks. Our paper thus highlights another source of gains from trade liberalization through mitigating domestic misallocation.

报告论文二:

Leverage Dynamics in the Haze of Pandemics

主讲人:俞路平,香港大学博士

讲座内容:

We empirically investigate the effects of pandemics on corporate leverage dynamics from firm-level data in 46 economies between 1980 and 2018. Using the index of discussion about pandemics to measure pandemic concern, we find that pandemic concern is associated with higher observed leverage, lower target leverage, and slower movement toward the target during pandemics. The impacts of pandemics on leverage dynamics are stronger for more financially constrained firms and for economies with worse credit or medical conditions. Results using an instrumental variable based on average pandemic concern in neighboring countries strengthen the identification and confirm our main results.
