Zhang Juzheng dedicated his life to the Ming Dynasty for 50 years. What did he do?

Emperor Jiajing s late assistant minister was Yan Song. There were two traitors in the cabinet, Yan Song and his son, but Emperor Jiajing was a master of political balance. At that time, Zhang Juzheng was in the cabinet with Lao Gao and Lao Xu as a clear stream and Yan Song fights.

The Long Qing Dynasty was a period of very low existence. It was only six years. During these six years, Lao Gao and Zhang Juzheng were still in the cabinet. At that time, the Ming Dynasty basically belonged to a situation of inaction and political struggle was not obvious. The Long Qing New Deal The progress is also good, but the reforms of the Long Qing New Deal and Zhang Juzheng are still very different.

He resolved the fiscal problems that had existed since the Jiajing Dynasty in one fell swoop and implemented tax reform. After a few years, the state treasury was abundant, otherwise the three major levies of the Wanli Dynasty would have brought down the Ming Dynasty. Taking Tian as the sect means paying as much tax as you have land. The more land you have, the more you pay, which promotes fair taxation. One whip method also checked the country s cultivated land by clearing the land. Many landowners in the mid-Ming Dynasty often bribed local officials to misreport their assets, and this hand of Zhang Juzheng directly cut off their chances of making a fortune.

Under such difficult circumstances, the Ming Dynasty could persist for 50 years, and Zhang Juzheng contributed. The key to this buddy is to hold back the Emperor Wanli. Emperor Wanli was a student of Zhang Juzheng. The key is that his father was also a student of Wanli. In the early period of Wanli, it can be said that Wanli was overwhelmed. It is a pity that most of the contents of Zhang Juzheng s new policy were abolished after Wanli pro-government. I dont know if it was a catharsis or something.
