Abstract: I examine the mechanism by which political ties influence domestic firms' exit decisions following competitive foreign entry in a transition economy. My theory development is formed through three clusters of hypotheses. I first examine the main effects of political ties on firm exit, distinguishing exit through dissolution and acquisition; I then evaluate the "when" question - since when the effect of ties will start to kick in and till when the effects will start to decay; finally, I examine how the impact of ties on exit is contingent on environmental factors such as economic and institutional development. I test my hypotheses on a sample of 248 firms in the Chinese TV manufacturing industry over the 1993-2003 period.
