BIBLIOGRAPHY Cho-yun Hsu, Han Agriculture, ed. Dull. Seattle and London: University of Washington Press, 1980. 141 BC Tax Remission (China), official central government policy of tax relief instituted in response to protests during the reign of the Han Dynasty’s Emperor Wu-ti (141–87 BC). Enlightened court officials complained to the emperor that the peasants were suffering from various excessive burdens, including taxation, forced labor (corvée), and maltreatment by landlords. In response, from time to time the central government remitted taxes on the peasants, especially in agricultural regions of China that were hard hit by natural disasters, thereby establishing a most significant tax policy precedent.

The Reformers returned to this issue repeatedly during a dialogue with government supporters (Modernists) reviewing many policies and their consequences, although the ostensible focus of the review concerned the government’s monopolies in the salt and iron industries (hence the title), and in the alcoholic spirits industry as well.
