In 1723 the Trịnh family lord who ruled northern Vietnam announced that he had made an historical examination of past political land management in east Asia. Repudiating the past ten centuries of Chinese tax reforms, Trịnh Cương (鄭棡) proposed that the best tax system of all, and the one whose purposes could most readily be understood by the Vietnamese people, was the pre–Yang Yan (楊炎), early Tang dynasty’s three-part “land-laborhousehold” (租庸調) tax (to dung dieu in Vietnamese). This was precisely the tax that Tang China itself had abandoned nearly a thousand years before. Trinh Cuong tried to reintroduce this early medieval tax formula into north Vietnam, which at the time was a checkerboard of different regional tax rates; he and some of his successors (notably Trịnh Doanh (鄭楹), ruler 1740– 1767) evidently hoped to make it part of a restored “equal fields” (「均田」) system in the Red River delta.
