When the Second Sino-Japanese War broke out in 1937, the Japanese government imposed wide-ranging economic controls to mobilize resources for the war. This presentation investigates the evolution of controlling systems and its economic implications.

He has published extensively in major journals in economic history and economics, including Journal of Economic History, Economic History Review, and American Economic Review. His recent research interests include history of war economies, and historical research on innovation.

This lecture is made possible with the generous support of the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.
