  内容简介:


  By changing transaction costs, trust can be an important determinant of interregional economic exchange. Based on several unique datasets of bilateral trust and trade at provincial level in China, this study investigates the trust-trade relationship empirically. As a channel of affecting bilateral trade, bilateral trust is incorporated into the gravity model. The baseline results show that the bilateral trust is positively correlated to the bilateral trade significantly. Two sensitivity tests using trust level to replace bilateral trust and using an alternative estimation of interprovincial trade in China, also confirm this positive trust-trade relationship. In addition, by controlling for institutional quality, labor migration, and the endogeneity of trust, we find that the trust-trade relationship is robust. This relationship seems to reveal a new channel of boosting bilateral trade, i.e., improving bilateral trust.
