  • Authors: Naito, Tomoe; Wie, Dainn (2019)

  • In Japan, where the responsibility for child rearing lies mostly with women, mothers experience tighter time constraints and increased demands for parenting when their children enter elementary school. This phenomenon is called the first grade shock, which has been recognized by the media and government, however very few scholars have quantitatively examined. So our study employs unique data from the national survey conducted by the Japan Institute for Labor Policy and Training in 2012 and 2014 containing detailed information about mothers‟ employment and emotional distress to examine the existence of first-grade shock. Difference-in-difference framework is used for analysis. Our empi...

  • Impact of export variety on productivity in Japan.pdf.jpg
  • Article


  • Authors: Nguyen, Anh Thu (2010)

  • This paper underlines the idea of endogenous growth theory that new or higher quality products have significant impacts on productivity and economic growth. Different with previous studies, this paper uses a quite comprehensive definition of variety, which distinguishes the country of origin of the products. With disaggregated level of export data of Japan from 1980 to 2000, the empirical results suggest that nearly half of the industries studied have positive and significant relationship between varieties and Total Factor Productivity (TFP). Most of the industries, which show the positive and significant relationship between export variety and TFP, are secondary industries. This conc...

  • The impacts of natural disasters on Asian economies. Case studies of earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan, and storms and floods in Vietnam .pdf.jpg
  • Article


  • Authors: Vu, Thanh Huong; Nguyen, Hue Minh (2011)

  • This paper examines the impacts of natural disasters on Asian economies through two cases of natural disasters in Japan and Vietnam. The paper uses published statistics and the opinions of experts together with personal analysis to examine these two cases, focusses on discussing the impacts of natural disaster on the economy of these two countries, and then expands conclusions to the scope of other Asian economies. The paper argues that natural disasters have considerable consequences on human life and economies, and lead to long term damage in Asia. The paper concludes by inferring some policy implications to help Asian countries minimize the impacts of natural disasters on their ec...

  • Article


  • Authors: Nguyen, Cam Nhung; Bui, Tu Anh; Le, Thi Hue; Nguyen, Thi Cam Huyen (2018)

  • This study clarifies the impact of the fluctuation of the VND/USD and VND/JPY exchange rates on the trade balance between Vietnam and Japan through testing the J-curve effect by using a vector autoregressive (VAR) model, Impulse Response Function (IRF), stationary test, Granger test and variance decomposition analysis.
