Title: Government Subsidies and Performance in The New Energy Vehicle Industry During the Post-Subsidy Era in China
Abstract: As the new energy vehicle industry matures, the Chinese government has gradually reduced government subsidies for new energy vehicle enterprises since 2017. This study focuses on the impact of government subsidies on the performance of new energy enterprises in China during the post-subsidy era, which is the period previous literature did not cover. Our research relies on new energy vehicle enterprises' panel data from 2017 to 2022. The results show that the relationship between government subsidies and new energy vehicle enterprise performance is inverted U-shaped. Also, compared with state-owned enterprises and enterprises in developed regions, non-state-owned enterprises and enterprises in underdeveloped regions have a higher dependence on new energy subsidies. Moreover, the impact of government subsidies on new energy vehicle enterprises is realized through R&D as an intermediary effect. The robustness test shows that this result is stable and reproducible when considering the subsidies' lag. The study draws attention to government subsidy utilization efficiency, significantly when new energy vehicle subsidies decline.

Title: Religious Nationalism in Contemporary Japan
Abstract: The study of religious nationalism in Japanese politics has been a relatively understudied sub-field of research. Although secularization has been apparent in Japan, there has been a substantial revival of religion in politics of Japan. The assassination of former Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in July 2022, shed light on the relationship between the controversial religious organization, known as the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, and Japanese politics. The mother of the man suspected of killing Abe was bankrupted as the result of huge donations to the Church. Through strong ties with Abe family, the Church has exerted its influence on Japanese politics especially among conservative LDP (Liberal Democratic Party) members for several decades. Its ties with politics went back to the period of the Nobusuke Kishi’s administration, known as Abe's grandfather. Religious nationalism is not a new phenomenon in Japan, however hitherto Buddhist nationalists and state-Shinto have been paid attention as the center of religious nationalism especially during the Japanese imperialist war in 20th century. While religion is not a necessary component of nationalistic ideologies, religious considerations have been part of political decisions. The religious groups as the social organization have continued to gain more political power and to impose their religious visions on all of society. The election supports by religious groups for increasing vote-gathering power cannot be ignored by the candidates to win the national or municipal elections. This paper seeks to reveal the relations between religious nationalism and politics little discussed in the mainstream of Japan’s political studies and to examine how political decision have been affected by religious nationalism.
