AbstractThis paper offers a theory to explain in the Chinese context how interfirm transactions can be effectively carried out in the absence of a sound contract enforcement system. Noting that the development of China's nonstate sector, the primary contributor to its rapid economic growth, has relied heavily on its transactional relationships with the state sector, we develop an agency theory of interfirm transactions based on the following idea: a state enterprise manager, being an agent, may acquire private benefits in exchange for not holding up a nonstate trading partner; and this, in turn, improves the latter's incentive for transaction-specific investments. © 2001 Elsevier Science Inc.
