- About the book
DetailsBased on an investigation of the WTO process and local protectionisms, Yining Ding's new book presents interesting research results in the following fields: - The interests of China and other countries in the WTO; - the historic and cultural background and economic incentive of regional protectionisms, the different influences of regional politicians on the reform and opening policy; - the administrative market monopoly during the transition economy and the route dependent behaviour of the reform and the local officials; - the "game" between central and local government; - the important role of Guanxi and its influence on the protective behaviour in relation to justice, abuse of administrative power, forged goods and the grabbing economy, foreign trade, and FDI; - Guanxi, rent-seeking and the structure of regional seigneur power; - the establishment of a model of different degrees of local protectionisms of sub-national governments. Yining Ding presents an empirical analysis and theoretical contributions to research on local protectionism and its influence on the post-WTO market in China and provides an overview of the Chinese status quo since accession into the WTO with up-to-date economic data. His book should serve economics majors, students in other areas with an interest in China and businessmen, investors and engineers who want to investigate or work in China well. In addition, this work should provide a guide or tool for readers to observe the current Chinese social development through different eyes.
