Economics Laboratory

Elucidating the mechanism of various economic phenomena.

To elucidate various economic phenomena, we establish hypotheses on the relationships between economic phenomena and verify them using data. We also express the existing economic structures with several dozens of simultaneous equation systems, which serve the basis for forecasting how the economy will shift in the future. Generally, we base our analyses on data.
