Research Statement: I study connections between western and Japanese economic institutions, with a particular interest in how Japan’s current recessionary experience produces a regulatory authority over macroeconomic policy agendas in the United States and European Union. For example, how western central banks negotiate their policy agendas in the post-2008 environment is tied to narratives about Japan that generate specific and concrete monetary and fiscal prescriptions. My work is historical, comparative and institutionally focused, with an inclination for particularizing Japan within economic study more broadly.
