A Study on the Misallocation Effect of Capital Combination on China’s
High-tech Industry

Cao, Hui ; Chen, Chu ; Wang, Kuan


This paper aims to investigate the misallocation effect of different capital combinations accumulated from R&D and non-R&D activity in China’s high-tech industry. Using a conceptual model, the study first establishes an equilibrium combination derived from the firm’s behavior, and then analyzes the misallocation situation in China’s high-tech industry from 2003–2016. The findings indicate that the misallocation effect becomes clearer in the Chinese high-tech industry as input increases, and increased non-R&D activity worsens the misallocation.
