In this paper we examine the economic conditions of the Sugar plantations and their influences on the peasants' economy in Java in 1910s. After breaking out of the world war I there continued a favourable time for them for about 2 years, but since the end of 1916 the situation became seriously worse because the want of shipping hinderd the export. Then came the after war boom and Java-sugar was exported extensively at the very high prices which continued to the middle of 1920, when suddenly came slump.
