Research: We can consider social and economic bilateral relationships such as employment, housing contracts, and marriages, as ‘partnerships’. I study the stability of partnerships in the search-theoretic framework, and explore its implications on the macroeconomic and labor market issues.
Teaching: I organaize and manage the JTW program, for which I regularly teach Japanese Economy and the modern history of Japan. I also supervise the Independent Study Projects (ISP) of the JTW students.
For all the courses that I’ve taught in JTW, please refer to this link http://homepage3.nifty.com/ronten/JTWhome.htm
Social Contribution: I occasionally participate in some policy research groups funded by the government.
