Abstract:

In this paper, we quantify the welfare implication of migration cost and land use regulation across Chinese cities. The migration costs caused by Hukou System are more restrict in the larger cities which would depress the workers arbitrage across space. Similarly, the land use regulation is more stringent in the migrant inflow regions also limit the migration. These two forces would both raise the spatial misallocation in China. Using a horizontal soring framework which explicitly captures the role of migration cost and housing price, we find both reductions in migration cost and relaxing land use regulation are welfare improving. The migration costs in China decrease by 37.1%, the cross-province migration rate in China would reach the cross-state migration rate in U.S., and this reduction in migration cost would improve the household welfare. The monetary welfare gain for an average Chinese household is $542.1, which accounts for 31.5% of the average household income. We remove the effects of housing supply regulation on the coastal cities by making the housing price elasticity to population in coastal cities equal to the inland cities. It will improve the welfare level by 13.99% of the average household income. Our conclusions have general policy implications.
