ECONOMIC STUDIES IN KEIO UNIVERSITY: FROM FUKUZAWA TO THE MODERNS

Advanced Economics classes in addition to the courses for the first year
Students thus spend four years learning both the deductive and inductive methods with varying emphasis on the two, to graduate with the comprehensive skill to think logically using economics.

TOWARDS THE RESTRUCTURING OF WELFARE SOCIETY


The Type A and Type B curricula at Hiyoshi correspond to the different entrance examinations. Students who passed the entrance examination including mathematics as one of the subjects go on to learn in the Type A curriculum. Students who passed the entrance examination including Japanese history or world history, as well as the entrance examination for PEARL, go on to lean in the Type B curriculum. PEARL is an all-English programme.

 

THE STRUCTURE OF GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISES


There are three reasons for this separation into Type A and Type B during the first two years of study. First, both the deductive and inductive approaches are essential in learning to think logically using economics. Second, this separation allows students to start their learning in an approach most familiar to them, increasing the students’ motivation and productivity. Third, students from both types of curriculum go on to attend classes at Mita with deductive as well as inductive orientations, which creates a synergy.


Students at the faculty of economics spend their first and second years at our Hiyoshi campus, where they learn liberal arts and the basics of economics. The curriculum at Hiyoshi involves two distinct paths: Type A (deductive, with focus on economic theory and mathematics) and Type B (inductive, with focus on contemporary and historical economic evidence). Both prepare students for the more specialised and advanced study in their third and fourth years at our Mita campus.

SOCIAL THEORY OF FISCAL SCIENCE

This comprehensive introduction to economic growth presents the main facts and puzzles about growth, proposes simple methods and models needed to explain these facts, acquaints the reader with the most recent theoretical and empirical developments, and provides tools with which to analyze policy design. The treatment of growth theory is fully accessible to students with a background no more advanced than elementary calculus and probability theory; the reader need not master all the subtleties of dynamic programming and stochastic processes to learn what is essential about such issues as cross-country convergence, the effects of financial development on growth, and the consequences of globalization. The book, which grew out of courses taught by the authors at Harvard and Brown universities, can be used both by advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and as a reference for professional economists in government or international financial organizations.

first presents the main growth paradigms: the neoclassical model, the AK model, Romer’s product variety model, and the Schumpeterian model. The text then builds on the main paradigms to shed light on the dynamic process of growth and development, discussing such topics as club convergence, directed technical change, the transition from Malthusian stagnation to sustained growth, general purpose technologies, and the recent debate over institutions versus human capital as the primary factor in cross-country income differences. Finally, the book focuses on growth policies—analyzing the effects of liberalizing market competition and entry, education policy, trade liberalization, environmental and resource constraints, and stabilization policy—and the methodology of growth policy design. All chapters include literature reviews and problem sets. An appendix covers basic concepts of econometrics.

READINGS IN THE HISTORY OF JAPAN

Students at the faculty of economics spend their third and fourth years at our Mita campus, where the two paths of learning in the first two years converge. At Mita, students learn in the same one curriculum, while choosing their subjects of interest among diverse fields of economics.
