Dr. R Ian McEwin, Director at Global Economics Group, and Dr. Corinne Chew provide a close examination of the facts and significance of one of the first antitrust cases in China. In China”The Baidu Decision, Dr. McEwan and Dr. Chew identify a number of problems and shortcomings with the process of implementing the law.
