The administration emphasized protection of private rights in efforts to revise civil law, 15 although rights of private property and economic organization were subject to the scrutiny and control of the state. The Japanese residency-general on the peninsula prior to annexation faulted Korean law as an inadequate basis for private rights. 16 The Koreans had little or no conception of private rights as these were understood elsewhere in the Orient. Thus such maladministration existed for a long time that public officials were accustomed to pay only scant respect to the private rights of the people, and the latter on their side, did not complain against official extortion.
Cooperation among Korean investors in capital formation was also necessary to maintain growth in a capitalintensive large-scale industrial venture, as highlighted in reports of the company's need for increased funding. 48 The ideal of a Korean company owned by a large number of smaller Korean investors seemed implicit in the company's founding ideology. Yet by March of 1925, the number of investors decreased from 194 to 89, while capital investment by the remaining stockholders increased. Here difficulties in gaining the support of the agrarian elite might explain the growing concentration.
The colonial legal framework established a new pattern of relations between major business leaders and the state. Legislation developed within the administration and promulgated by decree gave authority, content, and practical direction to state economic policy, assuring compliance through incentives and constraints. Banking laws, the Corporation Law, and the clarification of property ownership through the Cadastral Survey established a basic format for economic activity already in the early years of colonial rule.
