Abstract/摘要：A sample of Chinese listed state-owned enterprises (SOEs) from 2009 to 2016, this study tests the impact of anti-corruption reform implemented in China on firms’ agency costs over the observed years. We find that the enforcement of anti-corruption reform can reduce the managerial on-job consumption, improve asset utilization efficiency, and restrict the over-investment of Chinese SOEs. Our results further show that the enforcement of anti-corruption reform can affect board diligence by improving independent directors’ attendance, to reduce managers’ on-job consumption and improve asset utilization efficiency. However, the impact of anti-corruption reform in mitigating over-investment among Chinese SOEs is not influenced by the board of directors.
