Previous Events

Ask the Authors! “Follies and Wisdom in the History of Taxation” by Michael KEEN and Joel SLEMROD

Wednesday, 1 September 2021, 6:00-7:30 pm (JST) / 10:00-11:30 am (BST) / 5:00-06:30 (EDT)

The history of taxation, full of bizarre episodes and flashes of brilliance, is deeply instructive for today’s tax problems. Drawing on their new book Rebellion, Rascals, and Revenue, Michael Keen and Joel Slemrod show how stories from the past can both entertain and convey principles of good (and bad) taxation.

Tokyo College Lecture “Resilience and Innovation in Japan’s economy” by Prof. Jenny CORBETT

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Thursday, 24 June 2021, 4:00-5:00 pm

Over 50 years, Japan changed from a rapidly-growing economic superstar to a sedate veteran, raising questions about what transitions are needed to succeed as a post-industrial, advanced economy. Japan is in the vanguard of the problems that face many other countries, and its experience raises questions about how to adapt to slow-moving and ubiquitous problems such as ageing population, inequality, changing work patterns, slow productivity growth and industrial hollowing out, but also about resilience, response to short-term crises and change. For all its specific characteristics there is a lot the world needs to learn from Japan.

Tokyo College Symposium: “Religion and the Rise of Capitalism”

イベント予定シンポジウム/Symposium

Wednesday, 9 June 2021 8:30-10:00am (JST) / Tuesday, 8 June 2021 7:30-9:00pm (EST)

This Tokyo College Symposium welcomes Professor Benjamin Friedman to our campus (virtually) for a discussion on the relationship between economic and religious thinking in relation to his recently published book titled “Religion and the Rise of Capitalism.” The symposium begins with a brief presentation by Professor Friedman on the main ideas of the book with remarks by Professor Shinji Nohara and Dr. Rory Schacter to follow. A panel discussion moderated by Professor Takeo Hoshi further explores how political economic thinking is influenced by religious and other intellectual debates in the societies of not only Western countries but in Japan and East Asia as well.
