Research summary


From the viewpoint of public economics, I have studied the efficiency of disaster prevention, disaster prevention planning policy, disaster prevention measures in corporations.  It is not possible to stop natural disaster happening, but I consider how to create mechanism of disaster recovery of daily life and society, with an emphasis on statistical evidence.
