Example text

The native banks met their downfall after the unification of Chinese currency in 1933. Furthermore, all private banks lost the special rights to issue their own banknotes after the 1935 currency reform. The power of the state began to eclipse that of society through the control of banking and finance. According to the view of Chinese scholars,6 the attitudes of Shanghai capitalists toward the Nationalist government changed in several phases. At first, they supported the Nationalist government's efforts to unite the country with patriotic feeling and hoped the government would establish a sound new economic order.

With the growth of modern industries and banking in Shanghai, the emerging Chinese bourgeoisie played an increasingly important political and economic role. They participated in all important political affairs, including the 1911 revolution. 5 This case showed the strong political commitment of the Chinese bourgeoisie to the Republican Revolution. Furthermore, the Shanghai bankers exercised de facto independence by being able to resist the unsound executive orders emanating from the central authority.

To answer these constructive questions, this book provides a comprehensive historical background or an outline of the history of modern banking in Shanghai, depicting the complete cycle of the rise and decline of finance capitalism in China. In writing this book, I hope to stimulate some critical thinking about contemporary developments in banking and finance in China.
