Announcement to students
It has passed long time that ‘Globalized Economy’, ‘De-regulation and Liberalization’ have been pointed out as a set of economic slogans by Neo-liberalism. Their result, however, is the Lehamn-bankruptcy of Sept. 2008 and the world economic crisis from the US to the Euro crisis. On the other, Japan faced the bubble burst in the late 1980s as well. After that, it was severely in struggle with so-called ‘Lost Two Decades’ in the 1990s. And, finally, it seemed that the Japanese economy was turning around the final stage to clear off mounted debt as ‘negative heritage’ deeply seated in balance sheet of companies and financial institutions. At the very time, such tragically devastating seism as The Great East Japan Earthquake took place on March 11th of 2011. With this, it is much worried in the world as well as in Japan that roughly estimated cost to re-build scrapped tows and villages along with social infrastructure for both of industry and daily life, and to clean up the broken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant for decontamination for coming hundred and thousand years, may put horribly burden on the already world-worst budget deficit of the government with about 1000 trillion yen.
My research topic is to advance deeply, in light of money and banking theory, into these and those acute socio-economic matters. They will be turned into social and economic conditions surrounding you as next generation. I wish you can join in my research for our future.

Since the Lehamn Crisis of 2008, the world economy is now facing serious difficulties. This is not natural but human-made disaster, which has chronically taken place many times for the past 200 years since the birth of capitalism. My research topic is to search alternative way to construct monetary and financial system, in both terms of domestic and international aspect, in order to evade such daister from taking place never again.
