Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reviews how monopolization is treated under Japan’s 1947 antimonopoly law and China’s 2008 antimonopoly law. In addition to describing the relevant legal provisions, it also focuses on the economic principles and reasoning that have been adopted in both countries, as reflected in their laws and supplementing guidelines and regulations, and court rulings. Lastly, the chapter attempts to provide a comparative perspective on the legal and enforcement structures of these two countries. While Japan’s AMA and China’s AML have different historical roots, this chapter finds a number of similarities in the legal structure and enforcement of monopolization conduct.

Keywords: monopolization, economic reasoning, institutional design, antimonopoly law, AML
