CJEB welcomes you to a lunchtime "zadankai" seminar:
How Sino-Japanese Turbulence Affects
Trade Between the Two Countries
Lambert Family Professor of Social Enterprise, Columbia Business School
David E. Weinstein
Chair and Carl S. Shoup Professor of the Japanese Economy, Department of Economics, Columbia University; Director of Research, Center on Japanese Economy and Business, Columbia Business School
Tensions between China and Japan have risen considerably in the last few years. Ongoing issues, including the increasing conflict surrounding the Senkaku (or “Diaoyu” in Chinese) Islands and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s recent visit to the Yasukuni Shrine, have stirred already-sensitive, deep-rooted national memories. Economists have differed on the extent that these types of issues spill over from the political to the economic realm. Professor Fisman has conducted research about the effects of Sino-Japanese relations on trade between the two countries for the years 2005 and 2010 and will share his findings in the context of ongoing tensions.
Raymond Fisman is the Lambert Family Professor of Social Enterprise and co-director of the Social Enterprise Program at the Columbia Business School. His research – focused primarily on corruption and testing theories of social preferences – has been published in leading economics journals, including the American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy, and Quarterly Journal of Economics. He also writes a monthly column for Slate magazine. His second book, The Org: The Underlying Logic of the Office, with Tim Sullivan, was published in January.
Lunch will be served. Advance registration is required.
