Does One Size Fit All? Transplanting English Takeover Law into China. In Lehman, C, Tinker, T and Merino, B et al. (Eds.). Corporate Governance: Does Any Size Fit? (Advances in Public Interest Accounting, Volume 11), p. 41-70. Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2005 How to Cite?
AbstractCorporate governance has attracted enormous attention both in the area of law and in the area of financial economics. In comparative corporate governance studies, many people have devoted their energy to find a best corporate governance model. I argue that a functional analysis does not support the view that there is a single best corporate governance model in the world. I further use the transplantation of an English style takeover law into China to show that the importation of foreign law is not always based on careful analysis whether the imported foreign law is the best in the world. Furthermore, I use the subsequent adjustment of the transplanted English takeover law in China to show that the imported foreign law is subject to local political and economic conditions. If there is no best corporate govern model and the transplantation of foreign law into other countries with different social and political background does not achieve similar objectives, the search for a best corporate governance model is misguided. Just as tort law or constitutional law regimes may have diversified models, so do corporate governance regimes in countries with different historical, social and political backgrounds.
