To master's program applicants for Sasaki laboratory

I welcome students who are engaged in macroeconomic topics such as economic growth, business cycles, economic development, and north-south trade. Please read my reseach papers if you are interested in these topics and intend to applly for our laboratory.

Our laboratory accepts prospective students who intend to conduct research based on various economic theories and also who have already obtained a basic knowledge of theories and methods of economics.

Prospective students in any research field of economics are required to acquire a basic knowledge of economics such as political economy, macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, and mathematics for economics before enrollment. The following books are recommended for study of a basic knowledge of economics.

Political economy (社会経済学)

Macroeconomics (マクロ経済学)
Microeconomics (ミクロ経済学)
Mathematics (経済数学)
Furthermore, if you want to be an economist, you should read famous classics in economics such as An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith, On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation by David Ricardo, and The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money by John Maynard Keynes at least.

Economics is the social science that studies human economic society, and hence, it requires a broad perspective including natural science and humanities. The Journey of Humanity: The Origins of Wealth and Inequality by Oded Galor is suited to understanding what economics is.
