Jin shang was the earliest merchant in China, and its history can be traced back to the spring and autumn period and the warring states period. The Ming and qing dynasties were the golden age of the jin merchants, and the jin merchants became the top ten merchants in China. The Chinese business community has been the top dog for 500 years. The jinshang family is different from the general gentry family. It is a traditional Chinese culture family with characteristics of commercial brand.
One of the important representatives of the jin dynasty, the king, once said, "the businessman and the man are of the same mind. Therefore, the good traders, the property of the goods, and the practice of the high cleaning, is the reason not pollution; A good man, who leads the way of the king, and the path of profit, is a good one. Therefore, the name of righteousness is made in the name of qing dynasty, and it abides by its inheritance. This is from a shanxi merchant who has been around for more than 400 years.
