In November 2015, Oxford University Press will publish a new book co-edited by WEAI professors Benjamin L. Liebman and Curtis J. Milhaupt titled Regulating the Visible Hand?: The Institutional Implications of Chinese State Capitalism.
The book examines the domestic and global consequences of Chinese state capitalism, focusing on the impact of state-owned enterprises on regulation and policy, while placing China’s variety of state capitalism in comparative perspective. It first examines the domestic governance of Chinese state capitalism, looking at institutional design and regulatory policy in areas ranging from the environment and antitrust to corporate law and taxation. It then analyses the global consequences for the regulation of trade, investment and finance.
Benjamin L. Liebman is Robert L. Lieff Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, where he is also the Director of the Center for Chinese Legal Studies. Curtis J. Milhaupt is the Parker Professor of Comparative Corporate Law, Director of the Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law, the Fuyo Professor of Japanese Law, and Director of the Center for Japanese Legal Studies at Columbia Law School.
