ABSTRACT

Proceedings of the U.S.-Japan Socioeconomic Policy Research Exchange: The Rise of Telework Under COVID-19 and the Growth of Cryptocurrency   [open html - 0B]

From the Document: "In both the United States and Japan, teleworking, or working from home, underwent explosive growth during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, as did the adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies. To explore the implications of these two phenomena, in early 2021, the RAND Corporation convened a pair of public, online conferences that brought together leading U.S. and Japanese experts to inform the general public and generate potential insights for policymakers in both countries about how each side is responding to these phenomena. Noted economist, public intellectual, and former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich gave the keynote speech at the first conference, 'The United States, Japan, and the Rise of Telework During the COVID-19 Pandemic,' on February 4, 2021, discussing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of telework on employment. At the second conference, 'The U.S.-Japan Socioeconomic Policy Exchange, Year II,' on March 24, 2021, S&P [Standard & Poor's] Global President and Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the U.S.-Japan Business Council Douglas Peterson offered his perspective on the importance of and policy challenges facing the U.S.-Japanese economic relationship. This volume captures insights from the two conferences, reflects some of the exchanges among the participants at those sessions, and is built around the papers that the conference presenters submitted after the conferences concluded."
