Federalism With and Without Political Centralization. China versus Russia
In China, local governments have actively contributed to the growth of new firms. In Russia, local governments have typically stood in the way, be it through taxation, regulation, or corruption.

Second, competition for rents by local officials, eliminating incentives for new firms to enter.
