Wendy Ng (Melbourne Law and one of the best junior competition law scholars in the world) has a new book forthcoming The Political Economy of Competition Law in China.
BOOK ABSTRACT: The Political Economy of Competition Law in China provides a unique perspective of China's competition law that is situated within its legal, institutional, economic, and political contexts. Adopting a framework that focuses on key stakeholders and the relevant governance and policy environment, and drawing upon stakeholder interviews, case studies, and doctrinal analysis, this book examines China's Anti-Monopoly Law in the context of the political economy from which it emerged and in which it is now enforced. It explains the legal and economic reasoning used by Chinese competition authorities in interpreting and applying the Anti-Monopoly Law, and offers valuable and novel insights into the processes and dynamics of law- and decision-making under that law.
