Please join us for our China Lab Lecture.

Daniel Xu (Duke University) will present: "Tax Incentives and Firm Investment in China"

During his presentation he will cover the following two papers:

1. "Notching R&D Investment with Corporate Income Tax Cuts in China"
2. "Tax Policy and Lumpy Investment Behavior: Evidence from China's VAT Reform"

The China Lab Lecture series features scholars who do research on Chinese development. In addition to presenting recent research, all speakers will address the following questions:

1. What should policymakers in China do differently?
2. What did policymakers in China do right?
3. Are there lessons for policymakers in other countries?
4. What are the obvious questions for which more empirical research is needed?
5. What obstacles did the researchers face in doing research on China, and how should students overcome them?
6. Where and how did the researchers obtain data and institutional knowledge?
