Chinese Capitalists in Japan's New Order

Parks M. Coble

University of California Press

This chapter examines Japan's so-called new order for China after the fall of Shanghai. It suggests that while Prince Konoe Fumimaro's proclamation of a new order hinted at a comprehensive program of economic development focused on north China and Inner Mongolia, the New Order in East Asia and the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere were plastic concepts whose scope altered with Japan's war successes, and whose content changed with war needs. The chapter discusses Japan's confiscation of Chinese factories and the crude extraction of resources from China to cover the escalating costs of the conflict.

Keywords:   Japan, China, Prince Konoe Fumimaro, economic development, Inner Mongolia, confiscation, Chinese factories, Shanghai
