Many firms are connected to the government through their senior leaders holding or having previously held senior positions in government. These political ties offer the potential for resource transfers and preferential treatment for connected firms, but come at the costs of establishing and maintaining such ties. Do firms gain from political ties? And how do these benefits evolve when the economic environment and institutional structure undergo significant change? This presentation will draw primarily from two studies of business-government political ties in China.
