The Effect of State Ownership and Government-Affiliated Board Members on the Performance of Banks in China
郎 灵 ：国立一桥大学商学研究科，日本 东京
Using the data of 30 Chinese banks during the period of 2004–2013 as a sample, we analyze the im-pacts of state ownership and government-affiliated board members on bank’s return on assets, non-performed loan rates and cost-income rates. We find that the higher state-owned stock rate and more government-affiliated members make bank performance worse. The result is consistent with the hypotheses of “development view” or “politic view” of government. In the past decade govern-ment’s intervention made negative effect on banks’ soundness measured by NPL rate. The findings suggest that the government has to give up the intervention in order for a more effective and sound banking system.
