About this product
- DescriptionThe vast majority of the countries in the world are developing countries-there are only thirty-four OECD (Organisation for Ecomic Co-operation and Development) countries-and yet there is a serious dearth of attention to developing countries in the international and comparative law scholarship, which has been preoccupied with the United States and the European Union. Competition Law and Development investigates whether or t the competition law and policy transplanted from Europe and the United States can be successfully implemented in the developing world or whether the developing-world experience suggests a need for a different analytical framework. The political and ecomic environment of developing countries often differs significantly from that of developed countries in ways that may have serious implications for competition law enforcement. The need to devote greater attention to developing countries is also justified by the changing global ecomic reality in which developing countries-especially China, India, and Brazil-have emerged as ecomic powerhouses. Together with Russia, the so-called BRIC countries have accounted for thirty percent of global ecomic growth since the term was coined in 2001. In this sense, developing countries deserve more attention t because of any justifiable differences from developed countries in competition law enforcement, either in theoretical or practical terms, but because of their sheer ecomic heft. This book, the second in the Global Competition Law and Ecomics series, provides a number of viewpoints of what competition law and policy mean both in theory and practice in a development context.
