José Antonio Rodríguez Miguez on State Aids and the Wider Context of Global Trade Discourse

(Pix (c) Larry Catá Backer 2015))

One of the most interesting aspects of the battle over the control of the discourse of global trade and investment--represented on one side by the Trans Pacific Partnership and its European analogue (the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), and on the other by recent efforts of China to establish a new trade infrastructure around a web of trade deals and the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank on the nature and role of state intervention and operation within markets. It is here that one sees the great divide between Chinese and Western macro economic policies, and the space within which these distinct visions are most likely to clash.

Spanish readers might acquire a much better sense of the European position, one of the more refined and thoughtful public regulatory expressions of Western markets driven ideology, in a recently distributed work of Dr. José Antonio Rodriguez-Miguez, which appears in the Social Science Research Network:  El control europeo de las ayudas públicas: Visión general y la prohibición general de las ayudas (la noción de ayuda de Estado) (European State Aid Control: Introduction and General Prohibition (The Concept of State Aid)

This work is the ongoing version of the introductory chapter of the EU sate aid Law for a collective work on EU and Spanish Competition Law, Tratado de Derecho de la Competencia: Union Europea y España, 2nd ed., S.A. BOSCH.  The abstract follows


Spanish Abstract: Este capítulo es la puesta al día de la noción de ayuda estatal a partir de la hipótesis compleja que enuncia el artículo 107.1 TFUE, en la que el autor ofrece su personal visión de este concepto, sin duda uno de los más importantes y confusos del Derecho Europeo de la Competencia.

English Abstract: This chapter is an up-to-day review of the notion of State Aid from the complex hypothesis offered by Article 107.1 TFEU, in which the author gives his personal view of this topic, undoubtedly, one of the most important and confusing in EU Competition Law.
