The nature of corporate governance is a key determinant of corporate performance, and thereby of a country's overall economic performance, and corporate governance is therefore particularly important for China as it reforms, and grows, its economy. This book, based on extensive original economic analysis, examines key questions relating to corporate governance in China, including the relationship between ownership structure and corporate performance, the determinants of capital structure, and the nature of contemporary governance structures. It concludes - interestingly and controversially - amongst other things that corporate performance is positively related to ownership concentration, but negatively related to state ownership, and that contemporary corporate governance structures are heavily dependent on previous structures in the centrally-planned economy and on the path of transition to the market economy.
