Guest Lecture by Prof. Brian Woodall from Georgia Tech

We had an honor to have oraganized and hosted a special guest lecture by Prof. Brian Woodall from Georgia Institute of Technology on Jan 14, 2015.  He is staying at Tokyo Tech as a Fulbright scholar. For more information about Prof. Woodall, you can find here.

The title of the lecture was:

The Development of Japan’s Developmental State – Stages of Growth and the Social Costs of Energy Policies –


It was indeed interesting and significant to discuss the different patterns of development process and their driving policies.  I myself was once again amazed how knowledgeable Prof. Woodall is about Japanese political history, especially WWII.

We had many student participants from various units of Tokyo Tech and had good discussions on not only about development policy but also about the Japanese energy policy and beyond.

Thank you very much, Prof. Brian Woodall!
