|dc.description||This article is an analysis of a structural aspect of the 17th century Macao-Japan trade. Focusing on the figure of a Nagasaki merchant, who is known under the name of Suetsugu Heizô, the structure of respondência and its importance in this trade will become clear. The system of investment had made some Japanese merchants wealthy, especially merchants originating from Hataka and Nagasaki on the Kyûshû islands, because of the high rate of interest which lay around 30%. But the character of Macao as na intermediate port brought more profits to the Portuguese in this trade because of the value of silver in China and the countries under the control of the Chinese empire. In this article becomes indicated the nonpayment of Portuguese debt by certain bonds left in Japanese merchant s houses. And actually this problem created confusion in the Macao administration in the 1630 s because it could be one reason for the decision taken by Japanese authorities to fade out the commerce. I touch only the surface of this economic system and its periphery, but this system can be one indicator to measure the economic structure of the Portuguese seaborne empire in Asia.||-|
