1. 主題と目標/授業の手法など

    The course on WORLD ECONOMY mainly deals with policy aspects of Japan's contemporary macroeconomic and social issues with detailed comparison with other countries (for example, OECD nations). It is expected to provide students with basic and indispensable concepts of macroeconomics and international finance when necessary, and hopefully add social, political and cultural elements in international relations.

    The course consists of two major parts:
    (1) Overview of Japan's post-war economic reconstruction: It will cover issues such as how Japan had achieved rapid economic growth in a relatively short time span in spite of the economic and social devastation from WWII, how Japan had promoted globalization with the rest of the world, how Japan coped with the collpase of bubbles in 1991; and (2) Contemporary Issues of Japan in comparision with the world: It will cover the following 6 topiccs: economic growth and income gaps, globalization (trade, FDI, short-term mony flows, oil markets), international competitiveness (global competitiveness indicators, IT competitiveness indicators, academic achievement, patents), and fiscal conditions (fiscal balance, debt, relation between central and local governments, issues related to tax increases). If time allows, the course will also cover labor market issues (unemployment, part-time workers, underemployment of young people, femal working conditions, labor migrants), and social secutiry issues (aging society, low birth rates, public health care insurance system, public pension insurance systems).
