Shin-ichi Fukuda Ph.D.
Professor of Economics at the
University of Tokyo

For the month of February we would like to honor a relatively new IAES member, Shin-ichi Fukuda. Dr. Fukuda is a Professor of Economics at the University of Toyko and first joined the IAES in the spring of 2015 at our 79th International Atlantic Economic Conference, in Milan, Italy. Since then, he has regular attended the meetings and will be attending our upcoming conference in Berlin, Germany to give a talk on, “Impacts of Asian financial markets on global economies”. He specializes in macroeconomics and international finance, and his recent work has been inspired by issues related to exchange rate policy, monetary policy, foreign exchange reserve accumulation, and banking problems under crises. Currently, he serves as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of the Japanese and International Economies which specializes on topics dealing with the Japanese economy and its interdependence on other national economies. The global perspective he brings to our conferences is one of the reasons why we are honored to have him as our Member of the Month.  

Why did you become a member of the International Atlantic Economic Society?:

I became a member of the IAES when I received an invitation from Dr. M. Peter van der Hoek to submit a paper for the 2015 spring meeting in Milan. Since then, I have regularly attended meetings. In the meetings, I have had wonderful opportunities to learn from distinguished economists and policy makers in an increasingly appealing area of interest for me.

What do you find most enjoyable about your membership?:

IAES membership is the best way is to meet and listen to scholars from around the world. The range of topics addressed by IAES is impressive for me.

What types of projects/research are you working on and what inspired/motivated you to pursue that interest?:

I specialize in macroeconomics and international finance. My recent works have dealt with issues related to exchange rate policy, monetary policy, foreign exchange reserve accumulation, and banking problems under crises. I also serve as editor-in-chief of the Journal of the Japanese and International Economies. It publishes original reports of research devoted to academic analyses of the Japanese economy and its interdependence on other national economies. The recent world economy is full of research topics.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering entering your line of work/field of study?:

Choose a research topic that is something you love.  Research is not always easy to accomplish; doing something you love is the best buffer for the tough times. 

Favorite hobby: 

I love to travel all over the world.
