The Political Economy Of Competition Law In Asia

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Mark Williams, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has edited The Political Economy Of Competition Law In Asia.

BOOK ABSTRACT: This detailed book describes and analyses the essential political economy features that provide the backdrop to the competition policies and competition law regimes of several of the most important Asian economies.

The book also discusses the impact of these political economy influences in determining whether the adopted competition policy is effective. Each of the authors – experts in their respective countries – offer specific insights into the nature and structure of their competition regimes and discuss to what extent the varied political economy factors unique to that country help to determine whether and to what extent the established system promotes or hinders economic competition in that jurisdiction.
