This paper incorporates fiscal transparency of local governments into analytical system of enterprise micro behavior, and empirically tests two mechanisms of the effect of fiscal transparency on enterprise excess capacity, namely subjective and passive investment bias formation mechanisms, according to statistical information like a study of fiscal transparency of China's municipal governments in 2012 and the World Bank survey of Chinese enterprises in 2012. It comes to the results as follows: firstly, the increase in fiscal transparency results in the rise in enterprises' rational expectations of government behavior, the reduction in uncertainty judgment of external business environment, and the inhibition on low capacity utilization and excess capacity resulting from enterprise subjective investment bias; secondly, the increase in fiscal transparency leads to the rise in costs of government intervention on land factor market, then reduces enterprise passive investment bias resulting from government intervention on land factor market, and increases capacity utilization.
