...and 1870-1900 great gold, tin mining rush to Malaya, Australia, New Zealand and California.|
and by 1900, opium production in China, mainly in Sichuan/Yunnan greatly exceed imports from India.
I know this is sad history, but i do find it strange?????
How you guys see it?
Want to study this strange history, just for fun, (no politics! okay)
it's hard to get data, maybe with the forum, it become easier.....
how this trend, first OPIUM used that help to create trade imbalance of China with the rest of the world,
and the rise of Opium trade, the role of Shanghai, Guangzhou prosperity in that trade.
and what about the strange accumulation of wealth in gold and tin mining by Guangdong people!
strange that the revolution started from Guangzhou, Shanghai where the wealth in gold/tin production, opium sales were highest.
History is fun to study.
