Paper Money in Qing China

Paper Money in Qing China

Exactly How Common and Reliable Was It by the Early Twentieth Century?

(p.120) (p.121) Chapter Four Paper Money in Qing China
Chinese Money in Global Context

Niv Horesh

Western sources by and large did not provide an incisive answer as to the question of precisely why government and privately-issued paper money went into decline in China through much of the late imperial era: how and precisely when privately issued notes reemerged and how important a component they were within the late imperial monetary system. Neither did they explain in great detail whether the gradual reemergence of privately issued banknotes in China—which could be traced back to the latter part of the eighteenth century at the earliest—had anything to do with global financial stimuli. This chapter is designed to correct the gap in the academic literature on these issues.
