摘要: According to the big push theory, government should play a critical role in initiating industrialization by overcoming the threshold effect. In this paper, we evaluate an example of a big push strategy in China -- the Great Western Development Program (GWD), in which the government aims to accelerate industrialization in twelve inland provinces by intensively investing in infrastructure and encouraging investment in many industries, through massive public investment and industrial policies. Exploiting a spatial discontinuous design, we find that the program succeeded in accelerating industrialization for targeted regions. However, accelerated industrialization primarily results from massive physical investment, rather than productivity gains. The GWD also fails to foster innovation and entrepreneurship.
