The Enforcement of Securities Law in China: A Law and Economics Assessment (Paperback)
This book takes a law and economic approach to examine the securities law enforcement in China and provides an in-depth empirical analysis on the enforcement inputs and outputs. In contrast to previous studies, it systematically collects a large sample of judicated securities fraud cases and public sanctions as disclosed by the listed companies. The enforcement regime is further divided into the private enforcement exemplified by the civil litigation imitated by harmed investors and public enforcement by sanctions proceedings initiated by public agencies.
Academic researchers, policy makers and practitioners, who are interested in the securities market and regulation could find the information provided in this book interesting.
