摘要
Informed by the theoretical constructs of the new institutionalism, this dissertation studies how the introduction of modern banks and bank-issued paper money influenced state-society relations in urban China during the early twentieth century. Modern banks came to China at a time when the relationship between local elites and the state was in flux, buffeted by the decline of the traditional examination system and the multiplication of potential career paths. Banks contributed to the rise of a powerful professional group of bankers, but in Tianjin that group was made up primarily of outsiders who had little interest in protecting local prerogatives, thus weakening the entrenched power of the local elite.
The success of banks and bank-issued paper money depended on a community of trust, which was disrupted by periodic bank runs when the tenets of trust were violated. There was no fully integrated national market, and banks issued paper money denominated in local currency. This local dimension combined with the political fragmentation of China to tempt local officials and elites to try to control and regulate bank money for the purposes of insulating the city from external shocks. Local elites failed repeatedly when they tried to act as mediators, trustees, of banks and bank money, strengthening the conditions for central (or eventually Japanese) control. The growing importance of both state-sponsored and private banks served the purposes of state building, rather than provided a basis for elite autonomy.
Over the course of the republican period, banks contributed to the growth of monetarization and the integration of financial markets. New forms of financial mediation facilitated the modern state-building project by promoting everyday practices in which people put their faith in expert systems. The modernity of banks and bank-money inhered within a larger process which institutionalized expert knowledge as the basis for state-society relations. The public was redefined and judged by its daily participation in modern systems of expert knowledge, not by ideological commitments. The state, in turn, came to be judged by its ability to ensure that those expert systems worked.
