Title: Social Ties and the Selection of China's Political Elite

(joint with Ray Fisman, Jing Shi and Weixing Wu)

Abstract:

We examine the role of social ties in the selection of China's Politburo, the country's highest governing body. We use hometown, college, and workplace ties to current Politburo members as measures of connectedness, and obtain the counterintuitive finding that hometown and college ties are negative predictors of selection: after controlling for candidate birth city and college of attendance, hometown and college ties are each associated with a 7 - 10 percentage point reduction in selection probability. Theconnections penalty” is stronger in the Mao era, consistent with strong antifactionalist sentiment as a primary explanation for our finding, and it is weaker for more senior members of the Politburo, consistent with a role for intragroup competition. We do not find support for other prominent explanations, including geographic quotas or competition between groups. Our results suggest that at least for the most visible and heavily scrutinized levels of the Chinese polity, connections may be a liability rather than an asset.
