Abstract

BOOK REVIEW Competition Law in Developing Countries, Thomas Cheng. Oxford University Press. Great Clarendon Street, Oxford, OX2 6DP, UK 2020. 536 pp. (excluding bibliography) ISBN 978-0-19-886269-7. Competition law needs to be attuned to the unique characteristics of developing countries. This is a widely accepted principle. But scholars and policy makers are still debating what are the unique characteristics of such countries which are relevant, and how exactly competition law should be tailored in order to take them into account. Professor Thomas Cheng’s monograph is an important and unparalleled contribution to the growing literature on these issues. The analysis is well grounded in a meticulous analysis which encompasses, inter alia, theoretical and empirical studies on development and growth, a comparative analysis of the experience of different developing jurisdictions with competition law, and an in- depth and thought-provoking analysis of the legal and enforcement issues involved. Cheng’s book makes three important contributions. The first is the compre- hensive analysis of economic growth and economic development studies, both theoretical and empirical, which goes well beyond the usual analysis of economic characteristics of developing countries on which most studies of competition law in such jurisdictions are based. Cheng offers readers a wider lens
