This Day in 1989: April 25, 1990, World Economic Herald Shut Down

On April 25, 1990, The Shanghai city Communist Party Committee officially shut down the famous journal World Economic Herald.

Exactly a year ago, the journal, on April 25, 1989, had published a multi-page transcript of many famous intellectuals in a meeting commemorating the death of Hu Yaobang. Two days later, the journal was forced to halt its publication and its editor-in-chief Qin Benli was removed from his post.
