A thesis by Ye Guangliang and his doctoral student Cheng Long on the anticompetitive effects of a vertical merger is published in Social Sciences in China.

This is the first time a thesis on economic management with a HNU professor as its primary author has been published in the magazine. The thesis analyses how partial mergers between upstream and downstream enterprises affect collusive stability and provides a theoretical foundation for antimonopoly law enforcement organizations to evaluate the anticompetitive practices of operators.

Ye is a high-level talent and a Cheung Kong Scholar (Youth) recruited by HNU to improve the stature of the university. His research focuses on industrial economics, industrial organization theory, and anti-monopoly and anti-competition policies.

He has published several dozen papers in numerous prestigious journals, including Organization Science, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, International Journal of Industrial Organization, and Journal of Comparative Economics.
