Our guest is the eminent economist Paul Sheard, Senior Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Mossavar-Rahmani Center, an expert in both monetary policy and the Japanese economy.

Episode 08: Ezra Vogel and Noriyuki Shikata
Welcome to the Hale Report at EconVue’s studio in Chicago. Today is Friday, March 13th 2020 and we will be having a conversation with two renowned experts in their fields. Ezra Vogel is professor emeritus at Harvard University, a scholar of both Japan and China, and Noriyuki Shikata is a career diplomat who has served at the Japanese Embassy in Beijing. He is conducting research at Harvard this year, so both of our guests are joining us from Cambridge. Mr Shikata has also studied under Professor Vogel, so they have known each other for quite some time. We will be posting their bios on our website, Econvue.com as well as links to Prof. Vogel’s latest book about the history of the relationship between China and Japan, Facing History-very relevant right now. Both Professor Vogel and Ambassador Shikata had been scheduled to be in Chicago tonight, to address the 90th anniversary Gala of the Japan America Society of Chicago. Circumstances that are well known to all intervened, and although the Gala will be rescheduled for later in the year, we thought this would be a good time to go virtual and discuss the importance of the friendship between our two countries.

It was a great honor and pleasure to interview renowned political scientist Professor Dali Yang of the University of Chicago for our most recent Hale Report. His thoughtful and well-researched views on modern China’s political economy are a welcome summertime antidote to current turbulence in the US-China relationship. His books are all classics in their field, and you can find his papers as well on his website, daliyang.org. If you have never read anything he has written about China’s governance transformation, as well as the future of its youngest citizens, you are missing a critical guidepost to understanding the world’s second largest economy.

Episode 04: Nikolai Tagarov
EconVue Editor-in-Chief Lyric Hughes Hale interviews Nikolai Tagarov, advisor to the European Commission, about the recent travails in Venezuela. They discuss how the drop in oil prices has been replaced by income from drug trafficking, and how this has led to immigration flows that threaten not just the southern border of the United States, but all of Central America. Tagarov explains how Venezuela became one of the greatest failures in economic history and a contributor to human misery. He calls for a reexamination of the Monroe Doctrine, which allowed the US to intervene in its own neighborhood to protect its vital interests. Bigger picture, Tagarov envisions a new regionally-based multipolarity, replacing the previous unipolarity of the US.
