Hugh Patrick, together with Professor Yung Chul Park of Korea University, has been leading a major project on the ongoing financial development of China, Japan, and Korea. During the year they completed the editing of the book based on this project, How Finance Is Shaping the Economies of China, Japan, And Korea, which is scheduled to be published by Columbia University Press in late 2013.
Professor Patrick also continues his work on Japan’s economic performance and institutional changes. His most recent paper is "Abenomics: Japan's New Policy Package," which was included in CJEB's Occasional Paper Series. He presented this paper as a keynote speech at a lecture at the Seoul Forum for International Affairs in May 2013 as well as Stanford University's STAJE Conference in June 2013. He also made a presentation on the Trans-Pacific Partnership at Japan Society’s Keizai Doyukai (Japan Association of Corporate Executives) Roundtable in May. He was featured widely in the media, including in such outlets as Nikkei, Jiji News Bulletin and NHK’s “Project Wisdom” in Japan and National Public Radio in the U.S.
