Douglas was explaining the conflict between the prestege of character and
the prestege of money power. Both Japan and Britain were the victims of the
latter at the expense of the former.
In the early part of the century, I am not sure if it was pre-world war one
or immediately after that the Bank of England lent such a huge amount of
credit to Japan that it was kept a secret. It would be inevitable that in
the thirties Japan would have been subject to the banks directions and thus
the policy outside their control- doing the opposite to what Douglas would
This circmstance may have had an influence of Japan's decision to go to war
upon the US ( some neutral policy!) cutting off her oil supplies.
