讲座摘要:We study consequences of removing interest rate controls in a two-sector model of China. The model incorporates a key aspect of the distorted financial system in China:

state-owned enterprises (SOEs) have greater incentive to expand production and easier access to credit than private firms. In this second-best environment, liberalizing interest rate controls may have ambiguous effects on aggregate production and welfare. We show that, following the liberalization reform, capital moves from low-productivity firms to high-productivity firms within each sector, and thus improving aggregate productivity. However, the reform also reallocates capital from the more efficient private sector to the less efficient SOE sector,

reducing aggregate productivity and welfare. To examine the net effects of interest-rate liberalization, we calibrate a dynamic general equilibrium model to Chinese data and compute transition dynamics. We find that interest-rate liberalization can lead to significant reductions in aggregate productivity and social welfare, unless distorted incentives for SOEs and

unfavored credit access for POEs can be substantially alleviated.
