摘要:

Political borders affect consumers’ access to credit. We identify the effect of political boundaries by using the redistricting of Congressional districts following decennial U.S. Censuses and legal challenges combined with a large panel data set of consumer credit histories. We find that consumers lose access to credit when their Congressional district becomes more irregularly shaped (i.e., potentially more gerrymandered). The reduction in credit access is concentrated in states that allow elected politicians to draw political boundaries, providing evidence that the effects are the result of political processes. The effects are also strongest when Congressional districts become less politically competitive, and similarly, in independent tests, credit access falls in states that make it more difficult for constituents to vote. Our findings suggest that political redistricting can entrench politicians, thereby reducing their incentive to advocate for goods and services for their constituents.
