Abstract

As I had studied quite a bit at University of Tokyo graduate school, I was able to complete my required courses during my first year at University of Minnesota in good order. This allowed me to look forward to summer vacation of 1965 with a sense of freedom. I had some unexpected good fortune that summer. Professor Hirofumi Uzawa at University of Chicago allowed me to join a workshop that he held for several outstanding graduate students from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). At that time Professor Uzawa was conducting joint research with Professor Hurwicz on the difficult problem of mathematically deriving demand function from utility function. He visited Minnesota occasionally to work on this joint project.

Notes

  1. 1.

    I served as President of the International Economic Association (IEA) for three years from 2008, when the vice committee chair was Eytan Sheshinski of Israel’s Hebrew University; and the following President was Joseph Stiglitz. All of us were products of the small group in the Uzawa seminar.
