China is an increasingly influential emerging economy that is currently attracting the attention of academics, practitioners, and policy makers. The efficient allocation of financial resources is a key determinant of economic growth. Therefore, the development of a capital market is set to play a crucial role in China's ascension toward becoming one of the largest economies in the world. As a transitional economy with a unique institutional background, China also offers an interesting research setting providing new insights for finance and accounting literature. This book features cutting edge research on critical issues relating to the experiences and challenges of China's capital market development. The contributors include leading academics from the US, UK, Europe, and China. Topics covered include venture capital, executive remuneration, real estate market, information environment, institutional investors, banking, corporate governance, and financial media.
