    Under the leadership of two Yale PhDs, Franklin Ho and H.D. Fong, the Nankai Institute of Economics developed in the 1930s into one of China's best teaching and research programs. Faculty were constantly recruited from the products of leading western graduate schools. Important financial support came from Rockefeller Foundation and the Institute of Pacific Relations. The paper traces the intellectual efforts of Ho and Fong to find in western economics analytical principles relevant for China's economic growth and development, and concludes that these efforts were not very successful. However, the Nankai program survived the hardships of Maoism and is thriving at present.
