Comparative Economic Policy

HOME > People > Course List > Comparative Economic Policy

In the world, there exists a lot of different ethnic groups among which languages, cultures, and social structures differ from one another, and each ethnic group has independently or jointly formed and developed nation-states. It is interesting to know how each economy is constructed. We can achieve a deeper understanding of the mechanism of economic society by comparing economic differences between nations and regions. The most important aim of comparing national and regional economies is to shed light upon the plurality and diversity of economic systems. In the distant future, economic systems may converge to one single economic system, but at least in the near future it is expected that diverse economic systems coexist in the world. The goal of Comparative Economic Policy is to study the economies of key countries and regions, including Japan, Southeast Asia, the United States, Europe, and Russia, and China, and to verify the plurality of economic systems through comparative approaches.
