"Nanking Notes (mostly economic)"
Brief report on the economic conditions in Nanjing in the summer of 1938, roughly six months after the Nanjing Massacre. The author(s) emphasize the urgent need to address the problem of widespread poverty and unemployment – circumstances which the author(s) deem responsible for the rise in crime and drug distribution. One positive, however, is the "most commendable revival of small business among people" despite the "hopeless" conditions. The price of staple goods such as rice and damage to infrastructure are also surveyed.
