About the speaker:

Takatoshi Ito, Professor, School of International and Public Affairs, and Associate Director of
Research at the Center on Japanese Economy and Business, Columbia University, has taught extensively both in the United States and Japan since finishing his Ph.D. in economics at Harvard University in 1979. He taught as Assistant and tenured Associate Professor (1979-88) at the University of Minnesota, as Associate and full Professor at Hitotsubashi University (1988-2002), and as Professor at the Graduate School of Economics at University of Tokyo (2004-2014) before assuming his current position in 2015. He has been with The National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS) since January 2015 as a Professor and is now Senior Professor. He held visiting professor positions at Harvard University, Stanford University, and Columbia Business School, and was Tun Ismail Ali Chair Professor at University of Malaya. He has distinguished academic and research appointments such as President of the Japanese Economic Association in 2004; Fellow of the Econometric Society since 1992; Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research since 1985; and Faculty Fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research since 2006. He was Editor-in-Chief of Journal of the Japanese and International Economies, and is Co-Editor of Asian Economic Policy Review.

In an unusual move for a Japanese academic, Ito was also appointed in the official sectors, as Senior Advisor in the Research Department at the International Monetary Fund (1994-97) and as Deputy Vice Minister for International Affairs at the Ministry of Finance of Japan (1999-2001). He served as a member of the Prime Minister’s Council on Economic and Fiscal Policy (2006-2008). In 2010, he co-authored a commissioned study of the Bank of Thailand’s 10th-year review of its inflation targeting regime. He frequently contributes op-ed columns and articles to the Financial Times and Nihon Keizai Shinbun. He is an author of many books including The Japanese Economy (MIT Press, 1992), The Political Economy of the Japanese Monetary Policy (1997) and Financial Policy and Central Banking in Japan (2000) (both with T. Cargill and M. Hutchison, MIT Press), An Independent and Accountable IMF (with J. De Gregorio, B. Eichengreen, and C. Wyplosz, 1999), and more than 130 academic (refereed) journal articles, including Econometrica, American Economic Review, and Journal of Monetary Economics, as well as chapters in books on international finance, monetary policy, and the Japanese economy. His research interests include capital flows and currency crises, microstructures of the foreign exchange rates, and inflation targeting. He was awarded the National Medal with Purple Ribbon in June 2011 for his excellent academic achievement.
