Abstract

This article demonstrates that Japanese imperialism in Korea from 1910 to 1939 did not significantly affect the economic interests of imperial investors or industrialists as a whole. Instead, it benefited imperial workers at the sacrifice of farmers. This result conflicts with the orthodox economic interpretation of imperialism, specifically the Hobson-Leninist theory, supporting instead the idea that this imperialism was dominated by non-economic motives.
