Abstract:

The North Korea nuclear weapon tests precipitated geopolitical risk among northeast Asia countries, bringing exogenous shocks to firm’s investment decisions. We document a decrease in the average investment ratio of Chinese firms following each nuclear test. More importantly, the effects spread from the conflict zone and dwindle as companies distanced away from the test site. We distinguish this particular geopolitical risk from other domestic uncertainties given that the nuclear tests impact areas way beyond a country border. Apart from the geographical feature, we find that the nuclear test effect is larger for Chinese firms that are not owned by the Chinese central government, rely heavily on external finance, or have lower investment irreversibility.
