My Classes
In my Labor Economics course, students will study theories of various factors underlying the increase in unemployment and the number of temporary workers. Moreover, students will learn the present situation of Japanfs labor market using statistical data, and consider various elements underlying changes in Japanfs labor market. Students will also learn methods of analyzing various statistical data regarding economics.
My Research Programs
The term kakusa-shakai (society of widening disparity) has become very widely used. I am studying the actual situation of present society through effective use of statistical data, and seeking various elements responsible for this widening disparity.
