(p.114) Chapter 6 The Rong Family Industrial Enterprises and the War
Chinese Capitalists in Japan's New Order

Parks M. Coble

University of California Press

This chapter examines the experiences of the Rong family industrial enterprises in China during the Sino-Japanese War. The war destroyed more than 36 percent of their spindles, 60 percent of their looms, and 18 percent of their flour grinders, yet out of this rubble the Rongs survived, and even earned substantial profits. The chapter suggests that without the flexibility of the family structure, the Rongs might have been less able to survive the war.
