Abstract: The officially granted autonomy of administrators and managers in county-owned or state owned enterprises (SOEs) in China is often undercut by the financial and taxation practices of local officials. However, the enterprises in Zouping County that were most closely supervised showed the most rapid growth rates. This paper illustrates and elaborates the counter-intuitive finding: that smaller bureaucracy means a more direct government intervention that has done little to harm firm competitiveness.
