Japan Project Meeting – July 30-31 Tokyo Japan



ADBI hosted the annual National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Japan Project conference, featuring cutting edge economic research on Japan. This year’s papers very much focused on microeconomics, with a number of studies using a “natural experiment” approach to analyze diverse phenomena, including firms’ decisions to use American-style or Japanese-style import procurement, women’s childbirth and employment decisions, and changes in risk assessment and the location of firms after the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011.
