When Your Boss Is Out: The Impact of Severing Factional Ties on Cadre Performance in China

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Some scholars attribute China's rapid economic growth to a cadre promotion system that values economic performance. Others argue that political promotion in China hinges on factionalism. Empirical studies that engage in this debate often assume that performance can be measured independently from the effect of factionalism. In this article, we argue that factional ties have important influences on cadres' performance; in the absence of factional ties to higher officials cadres face greater performance pressure. In other words, performance and connections are likely substitutes. Our empirical analysis is based on a simple design: we examine the economic performance of prefecture-level cities before and after the change of provincial party secretaries. We find an immediate increase in the growth rates of prefecture GDP and government revenue in the year after the departure of former party secretaries. The growth enhancing effect, however, lasts only for two years on average.
