- 人文学院－已发表论文 
军市是指在军队驻扎地或屯戍地临时设立的市场。军市主要由军队掌管,设有专门的职官,其功能主要是提供士兵间或兵民间的商品交易以及军需品的买卖。军市的税收一般归军队所有,但偶尔也会被朝廷调为他用。军市的税收在一定程度上对中国古代经济,尤其是军事经济起到了补充和调节作用。古代星占学上也有相应的军市。军市还是刑人之所。Military Markets were set up in the place where the troops were stationed. Special officers were appointed to run the markets. The major function of military markets was to provide military supplies or conduct exchange of commodities among soldiers and civilians. The tax revenue belonged to the army, but sometimes the imperial government would transfer it for other purposes. To certain extent the tax revenue of military markets supplemented and adjusted the economy, especially the military expenses. In ancient Chinese astrology there had been symbols of military markets, which were also the place to execute criminals.
