    Abstract

    Ming Taizu's rejection of Wang Anshi and the "financial management" reforms reflected the vast difference in economic perspectives between Ming Taizu and Wang Anshi, as well as the significant change from the Northern Song to the early Ming dynasties. Ming Taizu adopted a materialized and mandatory tax-and-labor system and used technologies accumulated by previous generations to support finances so that the national system and the lives of the people could function effectively under a low-tax policy. In this system, people in the early Ming dynasty could not accept Wang Anshi's practice of suppressing property consolidation with monetization and employment-based tax-and-labor policies, nor could they accept his plan of increasing fiscal and taxation to strengthen the country's administrative capacity. As the effectiveness of the national system established during the early Ming waned, the Ming people began to confront problems similar to those of the Song people. As a result, the Ming people's interest in the "New Policies" of the Northern Song dynasty, particularly the "Service Exemption Policy", grew. However, only a few of Ming individuals concurred with the general principles of the "New Policies".
