Time Zones, Communications Networks, and International Trade

Time Zones,  Communications Networks, and International Trade



Over the past two decades, communications networks have come to play a crucial role in economic activities in the world economy. Due to communications revolutions, we can transmit voice, graphics, and large volumes of digitized data instantly and at close to Zero marginal cost to large populations around the world

. Yet relatively little attention has been paid to the relationship between communications networks and international trade. This volume, a collection of essays that represents my Work on international trade and communications networks over the past 15 years, intends to fill this gap. I am indebted to my teachers in Otaru University of Commerce, Kobe University, and Simon Fraser University for kindling my interest in the subject matter of economics. Masao Satake, Hideki Funatsu, Jun-Ichi Itaya, the late Kiyoshi Ikemoto, Kazuhiro Igawa, Masayuki Hara, Seiichi Katayama, the late Koji Shimomura, Junichi Goto, Fumio Dei, Hiroshi Ohta. Tetsuya Kishimoto, Takeshi Nakatani, Noritsugu Nakanishi, John Chant, Richard Harris, Steve Easton, Nicolas Schmitt, and James Atsu Amegashie have been instrumental to my early and continuing interest  in the discipline.1
