Socialistic Policies of Ancient China [5]: Government Control of Grain (2): Distribution and Government Loans of Grain
By Xinfajia   2018-10-01
In ancient China the whole empire was an agricultural community, so that the grain was not only the subject of production and consumption, but also the means of exchange and distribution (equivalent of money). Government lending of grain was practiced during the Chou dynasty to prevent usury. Besides, during Sui dynasty, the government introduced the system of village granary to store grain against bad years, which embodied the principle of "taking away the surplus to fill the insufficiency". It was carried on and improved through Tang dynasty.

   OUR GOAL     

   To restore indigenous 
      Chinese learning      

    by interpreting original
         Chinese classics       
     in the way of thinking  
        which is immanent     
   in Chinese learning itself,

   trying to avoid distorting
        or fragmentizing it      

       by applying Western      
    conceptions & paradigms. 

     Contributions of articles
