Corporate Political Activities and Firm Size: Empirical Evidence from Latin America

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



Abstract:

We discuss firms’ motivations to engage in corporate political activities (CPA).We argue that a firm’s incentives to do
CPA are increasing in size for small firms. For larger firms, CPA are more likely externalized to industry associations and
other entities. This suggests the existence of an inverted-U relationship between the time senior management spends with
government officials and size. We find such relationship using firm-level data from the World Bank’s Enterprise survey
for a sample of Latin American countries. We discuss other potential explanations for our results and study whether our
main result applies to selected subsamples.
