My main research area is the monetary policy and the financial system. I have examined the expeiences in America, Japan, and Canada. My second research interest, inflation and deflation, is closely related to the monetary policy. The third research area has been the economic analysis of the quake disaster. It has been the natural choice for me as an empirical economist who met the Great Hanshin Earthquake in 1995.
