We conducted business cycle accounting (BCA) using the method developed by Chari, Kehoe, and McGrattan (2002a) on data from the 1980s-1990s in Japan and from the interwar period in Japan and the United States. The contribution of this paper is twofold. First, we find that labor wedges may have been a major contributor to the decade-long recession in the(More)
It has been reported that LH receptor (LHR) mRNA is not detected in cumulus cells of porcine cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) just after collection from small antral follicles. The present study showed that the formation of LHR in cumulus cells was up-regulated by the cultivation with 20 ng/ml FSH. When the newly synthesized receptors were stimulated by 1.0(More)
The present study aimed to investigate progesterone receptor (PR) gene expression in cumulus cells and their roles during meiotic resumption of porcine oocytes. The amount of PR-A or PR-B mRNA was analyzed by RT-PCR using primer sets for the PR-B region or the PR-A/B common region. The level of PR-B mRNA in cumulus cells was up-regulated by FSH and LH(More)
This study examines the factors that influence poor Indonesian households to invest in floating net aquaculture after being relocated due to a reservoir construction project. We take this relocation and introduction of a new technology as a natural experiment in order to identify the determinants of technology adoption. To compare three primary decision(More)

Our main data source is plant-level data collected annually by Japan's prefectural governments. The collection of these data started in 1899, and until 1911 they were brought together and published nationally in a single source, the Statistical Yearbook of the Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce (Noshokomu Tokei Nempo). Even though the national government(More)
I claim that China during the Song Dynasty (960 – 1279 AD) (Song China hereafter) experienced the onset of an Economic Revolution, preceding England's by nearly a millennium. The concept of Economic Revolution is defined to include two types – one Premodern (non-science based) with a low growth rate of per capita product and one Modern (science-based) with(More)

Plants in clusters are often more productive than those located in non-clusters. This has been explained by agglomeration effects that improve productivity of all plants in a region. However, recent theoretical development of trade and spatial economic theories with heterogeneous firms has shed light on another channel of productivity improvement in(More)
