The Court of Justice has been alluding to 'abuse and abusive practices' for more than thirty years, but for a long time the significance of these references has been unclear. Few lawyers examined the case law, and those who did doubted whether it had led to the development of a legal principle. Within the last few years there has been a radical change of attitude, largely due to the development by the Court of an abuse test and its application within the field of taxation. In this book, academics and practitioners from all over Europe discuss the development of the Court's approach to abuse of law across the whole spectrum of European Union law, analysing the case-law from the 1970s to the present day and exploring the consequences of the introduction of the newly designated 'principle of prohibition of abuse of law' for the development of the laws of the EU and those of the Member States.

Freedom of establishment is one of the four fundamental freedoms of the European Union. The principle is that natural persons who are European Union Citizens, and legal entities formed in accordance with the law of a Member State and having its registered office, central administration or principal place of business within the EU, may take up economic activity in any Member State in a stable and continuous form regardless of nationality or mode of incorporation. This book examines the way in which EU law has influenced how national courts in Europe assert jurisdiction in cross-border corporate disputes and insolvencies, and the mechanism which allows them to decide which national law should apply to the substance of the dispute. The book also considers the potential for EU Member States to compete for devising national corporate and insolvency legislation that will attract incorporations or insolvencies. Central to the book is the concept of national choice of law. In considering the impact of freedom of establishment on private international law for corporations, the book uniquely analyses both corporate and insolvency law together, presenting the topic in the broadest possible sense. Importantly, the doctrine of abuse in corporate and insolvency law is covered, raising the question of 'forum shopping' and regulatory competition which underpins the intersection between freedom of establishment and private international law. Through examination of the most recent and leading judgments of the European Court of Justice in Centros and Cadbury Schweppes, the book derives certain conclusions as to the operation of the doctrine of abuse and the limits thereof in the context of freedom of establishment. Being the first in the field to examine the leading ECJ cases of Inspire Art, Sevic and Cartesio regarding the real seat doctrine, the book makes the judgment that there is no incompatibility as such between the doctrine and the freedom of establishment. Ultimately, the book analyses to what extent diversity in the corporate and insolvency laws of the Member States should be preserved, so as to encourage competition between jurisdictions in Europe.

"Forum Shopping" in der Insolvenz

missbräuchliche Dimension der Wahrnehmung unionsrechtlicher Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten

English summary: Exerting influence on the international jurisdiction of a court (forum shopping) and abuse of law often go hand in hand. Philipp Reuss deals with the admissibility of forum shopping attempts by debtors in cross-border insolvency proceedings. He analyses the theoretical foundations and describes the validity as well as the specific prerequisites of a prohibition of abuse of law principle in European insolvency law; an instrument which (at least partially) can be put in place against structures which are detrimental to the single market. German description: Einflussnahmen auf die internationale gerichtliche Zustandigkeit (forum shopping) durch Schuldner erfreuen sich im Rahmen der Europaischen Insolvenzverordnung (EuInsVO) reger Beliebtheit. Nicht selten ist bei diesen Manovern aber fraglich, ob dem Ziel der EuInsVO, ein fur die von der Insolvenz des Schuldners betroffenen Dritten feststell- und vorhersehbares Anknupfungssystem zu schaffen, noch entsprochen wird. Es lohnt daher, die Zulassigkeit von forum shopping im Rahmen der EuInsVO mit Blick auf einen reibungslos funktionierenden Binnenmarkt zu beleuchten und zu hinterfragen, wie binnenmarktschadlichen Gestaltungen erfolgreich begegnet werden kann. Dies unternimmt Philipp Reuss und stellt dabei das unionsrechtliche allgemeine Rechtsmissbrauchsverbot in den Fokus seiner Betrachtung. Er bereitet das seit jeher kontrovers diskutierte Rechtsmissbrauchsverbot nicht nur rechtstheoretisch auf, sondern entwickelt auch dessen hochst umstrittene Geltung und konkrete Ausgestaltung im Recht der Europaischen Union, insbesondere im unionalen Insolvenzrecht. Angesichts einer geplanten Revision der EuInsVO macht der Autor geeignete Reformvorschlage.Die Arbeit wurde mit dem Wissenschaftspreis des Gravenbrucher Kreises 2012 ausgezeichnet.

The Interface between Competition and the Internal Market

Market Separation under Article 102 TFEU

This book explores the interface between competition law and market integration in the application of Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), focusing on the notion of 'market separation'-namely conduct that may hinder cross-border trade. The discussion reviews, among other things, the treatment of geographic price discrimination and exclusionary abuse, by which out-of-state competitors are affected. 'Market separation' cases are treated in the book as a case study for appraising the interface between competition and the Internal Market. On this basis, the book provides a comparative analysis of the Treaty requirements under Article 102 TFEU when applied in 'market separation' cases and the Treaty requirements under the free movement provisions. In addition, it utilises 'market separation' cases as a springboard for advancing an informed reformulation of the application of Article 102 TFEU when state action comes into play. All in all, the analysis presented in the book deconstructs the elements for establishing 'market separation' as an abuse of the dominant position. It shows that there is nothing that would justify a distinctive treatment of 'market separation' under Article 102 TFEU, other than a principled understanding of Internal Market law as a whole: whatever understanding one reaches about the proper shape of the Internal Market, interrogation of the proper application of competition law comes after that and thus should be informed by this understanding.

Die Entstaatlichung des Geldes

Author: Philipp Bagus,Gerhard Schwarz

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9783038238867

Category: Monetary policy

Page: 182

View: 5848

In Anlehnung an Friedrich A. von Hayeks Werk “Die Entnationalisierung des Geldes” werden verschiedene Geldsysteme diskutiert, die den Einfluss des Staates auf das Geld entweder beschränken oder gänzlich beenden. Die Entstaatlichung durch eine konstitutionelle Bindung der Notenbank und die Verankerung einer Präferenz der Geldstabilität wird durch mehrere Beiträge verdeutlicht. Die Notwendigkeit einer weitergehenden Entstaatlichung durch mehr Wettbewerb wird auch vor dem Hintergrund der Eurokrise behandelt. Zentralbanken werden infrage gestellt, die Folgen der Institution eines reinen Zwangsgeldes werden aufgezeigt und der Währungswettbewerb wird als Lösung verteidigt. Mit Beiträgen von: Philipp Bagus, Ernst Baltensperger, James Buchanan, Milton Friedman, Friedrich A. von Hayek, Guido Hülsmann, Ekkehard Köhler, Gerald O'Driscoll, Anna Schwartz, Gerhard Schwarz, Erich Weede.
