Academic Significance and Contemporary Value on the Gap between the Rich and the Poor of Song Dynasty

Jing SUN, Mingqin WEI


As we all know, from Tang dynasty to Song dynasty, there’s an obvious change of traditional Chinese society. In academia, it is called the Tang-Song transformation. In the social and economic level, there has been a widening gap between the rich and the poor and frequency of social conflicts. Facing the growing gap between the rich and the poor problem, the Song government governed the society by taking a series of positive measures, in order to reduce the wealth gap. For this issue, in academia, there have been some researches and investigations, but these achievements are still not enough. This thesis tries to conduct a preliminary explanation of the academic significance and contemporary value of academic history review and rational discussion, in order to strike a chord in academia.
