TODO Yasuyuki (Faculty Fellow)



This project aims to examine how global inter-firm networks, particularly networks of production, shareholding, and research collaboration, affect economic growth and resilience and what policies related to such networks can positively affect the economy, using large-scale, firm-level data for firms around the world. To utilize large-scale data and provide more useful policy implications, collaborative efforts on this project are made by economists, network scientists, simulation scientists, and policymakers.
