Abstract

This paper, using unique survey data from the banking industry in rural China, investigates the effect of incentive contracts on performance. In the context of China`s economic transition, we find that the incentive contracts have a positive effect on the bank manager`s performance in deposit taking and non-performing loan reduction. This finding is robust when we control for the endogeneity of incentive contracts. Our empirical results present evidence on the positive effects of incentive-based banking reforms in rural China.
