内容提要:

Republican China is an era with frequent wars, political anarchy and natural disasters. However, it is also an age with moderate economic growth and gradual modernization, which seems inconsistent with the traditional economic theory and wisdoms. Why could the economy obtain stable development during this chaotic period, especially the so-called “capitalism” sectors (industry and finance)? To solve the puzzle, this paper evaluates the mainstream explanations. It finds that in addition to the traditional views (trade or railway), channel from the perspective of institutions is quite crucial, and the birth of the Chamber of Commerce and the rise of commercial class played an important role in the growth of “capitalism”. The Chamber as an organization of the commercial class, developed into a quasi-autonomy political group during the chaotic era, offsetting the loss of formal institution. Apart from the historical analysis, this paper also makes the tests with quantitative methods based on uniquely constructed datasets in Republican China.
