摘要:We study the distributional effects of monetary policy on firm performance and reallocation dynamics. Based on China Manufacturing Census data ranging from 1998 to 2013, this paper documents the evidence of two competing forces arising from China’s monetary policy practices. First, monetary expansion leads to an improvement upon the extensive margin of Chinese firm dynamics by selecting good firms out of the bad league of “zombie” firms that are marked by negative profits and subsidized borrowing. Simultaneously, conditional on staying as zombies, these firms are associated with greater resource misallocations, thus an deterioration at the intensive margin. We then build a heterogeneous-firm model with financial frictions that features the productivity heterogeneity along with size-dependent debt constraints and borrowing subsidies to rationalize the heterogeneous effects of monetary policy, the endogenous entries and exits of zombie firms, and the reallocation dynamics of Chinese firms.
