The product of more than 10 years of research, Transformation of China’s Modern Banking System provides a detailed study of the evolution of China’s banking system from the late Qing era (1840s) through the Republican era (1930s).
Transformation of China’s Modern Banking System offers a unique and comprehensive analysis of the financing structure, governance structure, incentive and restraint mechanisms, and structural changes of China’s modern banking system.
