So spoke Inoue Junnosuke to the economics students of the Economics Faculty of the University of Kyoto in 1926. He had earlier lectured in similar vein to the economics students of Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo. The name of Inoue Junnosuke was one to conjure with. After a long career with the Yokohama Specie Bank, he served as President of the Bank of Japan from 1919 to 1923 and again from 1927 to 1928. He had been called from there to act as Minister of Finance, first in 1923–4 and later in 1929–30. It was therefore something of a scoop for these universities to receive a course of lectures from an important practitioner in the field of economics and banking. And it was interesting that Inoue should in his peroration enjoin the students of Kyoto to devote themselves to the study of economics as a national duty.
