European Economic Law - Third Revised Edition
Emphasizing the complex legal regime affecting undertakings in Europe today, open to the whole world and subject as they are to ever-new situations governed by rules derived from both the EC Treaty and from WTO/GATT obligations, Professor Santa Maria presents a thoroughgoing legal analysis of the prominence of corporate and business enterprises in what many theorists see as the intrinsic ‘internationality’ of social activity in the current era. In the course of its intensive discussion, the book brilliantly disentangles the complex interrelations among a vast array of economic factors, including the following:
- the right of establishment and the free provision of services by business companies;
- the harmonization of company laws;
- the regulation of international trade;
- how the EU is facing the global economic and financial crisis;
- how the EU institutions’ powers and duties can be adequately reallocated;
- the widespread mistrust towards Member States that appear favoured (or less damaged) by the current crisis;
- the potential EU contribution to reform of the IMF’s organization and substantive rules;
- advantages lawfully acquired by, and unlawful conduct of, multinational enterprises;
- transfer pricing in intragroup transactions;
- international cooperation in the supervision of banking groups;
- ‘corporate social responsibility’ and ‘codes of conduct’; and
- the antitrust rules of EU in the globalization era. State aid between competition law and the non-discrimination principle.
