高利貸中的市場機制:以滿鐵調查為中心
在所有金融產品中,高利貸可能是負面評價最多的。與一些快速興起又快速消亡的金融創新相比,高利貸顯示出了極為頑強的生命力,這促使我們去反思其背后的邏輯,即什麼是高利貸?為什麼會產生高利貸?高利貸的社會經濟影響是什麼?於本次量化歷史網上講座中,中國人民大學清史研究所講師林展將利用近代中國質量最高的家庭調查數據之一的「滿鐵調查數據」,通過分析55個村庄5千多筆借貸交易,討論高利率形成的市場機制及其經濟影響。

Usury and Markets: Evidence from the surveys conducted by the South Manchuria Railway Company
Unlike many short-lived financial innovations, lending for high interest, or usury, as a notorious financial transaction shows remarkable resilience throughout human history. This leads to some interesting questions regarding the nature and logic of usury and its socioeconomic impact. Dr. Zhan Lin from the Institute of Qing History at Renmin University will share his latest research on usury using the loan data collected by the South Manchurian Railway Company [Mantetsu (Japanese) or Mǎntiě (Chinese) for short] in a special survey series covering over 5,000 transactions across 55 Chinese villages during China's Republican period. The data collected by the Japanese state-owned company is now considered one of the best-organized Chinese household datasets offering comprehensive insights into China's modern history. In this Quantitative History Webinar, Dr. Lin will explain how he uses the Mantetsu/Mǎntiě dataset to analyze the market-oriented financial system resulting in high interest rates and to explore its economic impact.
