CHARLES YUJI HORIOKA

 

BRIEF BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH: Charles Yuji Horioka was born in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., on September 7, 1956, and received his B.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard University.  He taught at Stanford, Columbia, and Kyoto Universities before assuming his present position as professor of economics at the Institute of Social and Economic Research, Osaka University.  In 2001, he was awarded the Seventh Japanese Economic Association/Nakahara Prize (the Japanese equivalent of the American Economic Association’s John Bates Clark Medal), which is given annually to the most outstanding Japanese economist aged 45 or younger. He ranks fifth among economists living in Japan and ranks in the top 3 percent among economists in the world in terms of numbers of citations, according to RePEc (Research Papers in Economics), and he has more than 4200 Google Scholar citations.  His specialties are macroeconomics, household economics, the Japanese economy, and Asian economies, and he has written well over a hundred scholarly articles on household saving, consumption, bequest, and co-residence behavior and parent-child relations in Japan, the United States, China, India, and emerging Asia in such top-ranked journals as the Economic Journal (3 articles), the Review of Economics and Statistics, and the Journal of Money, Credit and Banking and has edited three books.  His path-breaking article on the so-called “Feldstein-Horioka paradox” (written jointly with Martin Feldstein) was published when he was only 23 and is one of the most widely cited papers in international finance.  He has served as Co-Editor of the International Economic Review for more than 14 years and also serves on the Editorial Boards of several other journals.  He is a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc., and of the Center for Japan-U.S. Business and Economic Studies, Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University, and a consultant for the International Monetary Fund and the Asian Development Bank.
