I am an author and economist with a special focus on international financial and currency markets. I was Head of Research on International Financial Markets at the Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWA) up to its closure in 2007. I worked for the International Monetary Fund, Washington, D.C., the Economic Planning Agency, Tokyo, and as a Visiting Scholar with the Bank of Japan, Tokyo.

I was a lecturer on courses on General Macroeconomics  the Japanese Economy  and on European and International Financial Markets.

My recent research interests include emerging market currency crises and the relationship between financial systems and economic growth.

I use this blog to get in contact with those who are interested in the same topics and learn about their ideas.
