About Tag Murphy

Tag, a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Business School, was an investment banker in Tokyo, New York, and London at Goldman Sachs, Chase Manhattan, and A.G. Becker prior to joining the faculty of Tsukuba University where he taught in the College of International Studies and Graduate School of International Political Economy before moving to his current position at Tsukuba's Tokyo campus. He is the author of numerous articles (the latest can be found at http://newleftreview.org/?page=article&view=2625) and published Japan's Policy Trap: Dollars, Deflation, and the Crisis of Japanese Finance in 2002 with Akio Mikuni (Brookings Institution Press). Tag has also been a non-resident Visiting Senior Fellow at Brookings.

Tag will talk about the U.S. dollar's role as the world's premiere settlements and reserve currency and the crucial roles played by Japan and China in perpetuating that role. He has promised to suggest a new conceptual framework that could help us explain some of the seeming anomalies that arise from that role.
