This project conducts policy-oriented empirical analyses of corporate finance, financial intermediation, and firm dynamics. Specifically, the research agenda that are in line with current policy concerns include the status of small and medium enterprises' (SMEs) fund procurement after the abolishment of the SME Finance Facilitation Act, effectiveness of loans by government-affiliated financial institutions, and firm dynamics after the Great East Japan Earthquake. Other research topics such as the role of real estate markets in bank lending channels and the effectiveness of equity finance for economic growth are expected to bear a number of policy implications.
