★Abstract

We advance a theory of strategic preference expression in authoritarian systems, where actors weigh material benefits and costs of voicing dissents based on their bargaining power with the government. Powerful actors are more likely to express preferences truthfully to obtain policy concessions, while powerless actors are more likely to conform to the government’s position to obtain side-payments or to avoid punishment. We test this argument using survey experiments with firm executives in China, which ask executives differently prefaced questions about how liberalization of inward foreign direct investment (FDI) will affect their businesses: without versus with a preface that signals the government’s desired policy direction. The treatment increases the percentage of firms that report to “benefit” from inward FDI between 14 to 36 percentage points. Powerful firms (state-owned and foreign-owned) change their responses the least, whereas powerless, private firms are more likely to shift their reporting to conform to the government.
