Exploring the subsequent crisis of Japanese liberalism, this chapter relates how the Minseitū cabinet led by Hamaguchi Osachi succeeded in returning Japan to the global monetary standard in January 1930. With this monetary reopening to the West, Japan's domestic crisis became a microcosm of the global crisis of the gold-standard system.
