The Political Economy of Standards Coalitions: Explaining China’s Involvement in High-Tech Standards Wars

2006, Asia Policy

Scott Kennedy

Abstract

Through a comparison of two ongoing standards development efforts—wireless local area networks and home networking—this essay demonstrates how China's ability to successfully adopt and commercialize new global technology standards is shaped by the strength of business coalitions in China relative to that of coalitions formed by their foreign competitors.
