内容摘要:By taking advantage of China’s dramatic institutional shifts over time and large variations across communities concerning democracy and social interaction, I analyze the disparity in availability of formal and informal finance by their different mechanisms, including local governance and family network. I find that households’ financial access to both formal and informal finance has a significant impact on family welfare improvement. However, in regions with higher access to formal finance, the influence of informal finance declines. The influence of formal finance is limited to urban non-agricultural households, and informal finance is particularly important for rural areas and agricultural hukou households. This implies that a substitute and complementary relationship between formal and informal finance exists.
