六、内容简介：Based on the 2014 regulatory reforms aimed at strengthening the protection of legitimate rights and interests of minority investors in China, we investigate minority shareholders’ short-termism and how the enhanced minority voting power impacts firm innovation. We find that the enhanced minority voting power after the reforms lowers firms’ patent counts. We show that the reduced innovation outcomes cannot be explained by shareholders’ weak monitoring in firms with strong minority voting power potential, as for such firms, strong product market competition does not promote innovation. Moreover, the enhanced minority voting power boosts both the target earnings growth rate in executive incentive plans and executive turnover-performance sensitivity, which undermine innovation incentives. Finally, the negative impact of the enhanced minority voting power on innovation is particularly pronounced for firms with non-entrenched managers and firms with low ownership held by pressure-resistant institutions.
