Dr. Yoshiko Nagano of Kanagawa University will present a lecture on "The
Philippine National Bank: The American Colonial State and Finance,
1898-1941," today, February 7, 2.30pm, at the UP School of Economics, Room

This lecture serves as introduction to her forthcoming book on the
Philippine National Bank in the aftermath of World War I. Dr. Nagano analyses
the corruption in the institution as the overall Philippine financial
crisis, involving the political and economic foundation of the American
colonial state in the Philippines. She also locates it in the colonial
monetary and financial history in Southeast Asia.

Kanagawa University, Yokohama. She earned her PhD in Social Studies from
Hitotsubashi University, Tokyo, and also held the Award for Promotion of
Studies on Developing Countries by the Institute of Developing Economies,

migration and survival of hacienda workers. Her book on the Philippine
National Bank is due out of Ateneo Press this year.

Perhaps the greatest reading pleasure has an element of self-annihilation.
To be so engrossed that you barely know you exist.
