Roger Zäch and Andreas Heinemann, Europa Institut, University of Zurich and Andreas Kellerhals, Europa Institut, University of Zurich, Switzerland and Member, Swiss Competition Commission, have edited The Development Of Competition Law: Global Perspectives.
BOOK ABSTRACT: Competition law has changed substantially since 1990. The worldwide tendency toward market-based economic systems has induced many countries to adopt competition rules. This innovative book discusses the global character of competition law focussing on three interrelated perspectives. Firstly the impact of economics on global competition policy, secondly the competition law experience in selected countries (Japan, India, China, Czech Republic, Brazil) and how the law has adapted to the political, economic and cultural environment. Thirdly, perspectives on the internationalisation of competition policy and an apparent increasing degree of convergence are explored.
