Business Law Brief, Spring 2008

Abstract:     
China's young securities markets are at an all time high and attracting investors the world overworldwide who are eager to ride the progress to fortune. However, the Shanghai and Shenzhen markets also display high volatility, often jaggedly lurching up and down rather than rising at steady rates. In the United States, critics from all sides blame Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) for the loss of market share in the competition for initial public offerings (IPOs). Despite the meteoric rise of China's capital markets, they are not a significant factor in the decline of foreign IPOs in U.S. markets, nor are they likely to be soon. However, given the proper development of consistency and confidence in Chinese markets, and the growing and increasingly liquid Chinese middle class, in the next decade the U.S. may have actual cause to worry.
