Western Capitalism in China: A History of the Shanghai Stock Exchange
A history of the stock exchange in Shanghai. Following a brief outline of the establishment of the International Settlement and its broad commercial development, it provides a picture of the financial evolution of Shanghai, particularly the currency system and the main western banking institutions which financed the import and export trade. Chapter Three offers a detailed account of the main areas of commercial activity where local company formation and associated capital raising provided the share list with a growing supply of entries from the 1860s onwards, the number varying with the pace of commercial activity in the International Settlement and Shanghai generally.
