Reconstructing macroeconomics : a perspective from statistical physics and combinatorial stochastic processes by Masanao Aoki( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors treat macroeconomic models as composed of large numbers of micro-units or agents of several types, and explicitly discuss stochastic dynamic and combinatorial aspects of interactions among them. In mainstream macroeconomics sound microfoundations for macroeconomics has meant incorporating sophisticated intertemporal optimization by representative agents into models. Optimal growth theory, once meant to be normative, is now taught as a descriptive theory in mainstream macroeconomic courses. In neoclassical equilibria flexible prices led the economy to the state of full employment and marginal productivities are all equated. Professors Aoki and Yoshikawa contrariwise show that such equilibria are not possible in economies with a large number of agents of heterogeneous types. The authors treat equilibria as statistical distributions and not as fixed points. They employ a set of statistical dynamical tools via continuous-time Markov chains, and statistical distributions of fractions of agents by types available in the new literature of combinatorial stochastic processes, to reconstruct macroeconomic models
Comparing economic systems : Italy and Japan( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text compares the Italian and Japanese economies in a number of areas: corporate governance, growth, financial and foreign trade structure, labour markets and industrial organization. Most chapters are the result of collaborative ventures between specialists coming from both countries (primarily from the Universities of Siena and Tokyo). A major theme is that the two economies have often been successful thanks to institution, policies and practices that differ importantly from those of the dominant Anglo-American model
Causes of the long stagnation of Japan during the 1990s : financial or real? by Taizo Motonishi( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corporate investment is the most important factor to explain the long stagnation of Japan during the 1990's. Using the Bank of Japan diffusion indices of real profitability' and banks' willingness to lend', we estimate investment functions for four groups of firms: large/small and manufacturing/non-manufacturing. Our results suggest that for large firms, financing constraints are not significant whereas the converse is true for small firms. A fall of investment during 1992-94 is largely explained by real factors. However, the credit crunch occurred beginning 1997 and it lowered the growth rate of GDP by 1.6%

Econophysics and companies : statistical life and death in complex business networks by Hideaki Aoyama( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Econophysics is an emerging interdisciplinary field that takes advantage of the concepts and methods of statistical physics to analyse economic phenomena. This book expands the explanatory scope of econophysics to the real economy by using methods from statistical physics to analyse the success and failure of companies. Using large data sets of companies and income-earners in Japan and Europe, a distinguished team of researchers show how these methods allow us to analyse companies, from huge corporations to small firms, as heterogeneous agents interacting at multiple layers of complex networks. They then show how successful this approach is in explaining a wide range of recent findings relating to the dynamics of companies. With mathematics kept to a minimum, the book is not only a lively introduction to the field of econophysics but also provides fresh insights into company behaviour"--
