Competitive Advantage and Competition Policy in Developing Countries
Paul Cook, Raul V. Fabella, Cassey Lee
Edward Elgar, 2007 - Social Science - 376 pages
Competitive markets are now established in most successful economies but the question of what competition is and what it means for policy in developing countries is often overlooked. This book provides a refreshing and critical examination of the issues relating to market competition and competition policy. The book discusses competition from different theoretical perspectives and examines the implications these viewpoints have for policy. The contributors assess competitiveness in domestic markets and the impact of foreign competition. They also review the experiences of a range of countries in developing competition policy and examine both the strengths and weaknesses of these policies. Written in a non-technical manner, Competitive Advantage and Competition Policy in Developing Countries is addressed to policymakers, as well as academics, concerned with regulation and competition. It will also be of interest to regulators in dedicated agencies such as utility regulators, competition agencies and those dealing with regulatory impact assessment.
