The objective of COE/RES is to establish a research base for advanced theoretical and empirical studies of contemporary economic systems, collaborating top-class researchers in and outside Japan. From normative (equity and efficiency) standpoints, we examine current economic systems and aim to propose alternative desired systems.
To be more specific, our project contains basic research such as social choice and normative evaluations as well as applied fields including international economics, industrial organization and public economics. We investigate current economies, say globalization, innovations and aging of society and evaluate them normatively based upon advanced analytical tools of economics. Also, outcomes of these studies are reflected in the graduate program of Hitotsubashi University through lectures and research seminar to train young researchers.
