Research Philosophy:
Devoting myself to basic theory and frontier research of International Economics as well as applying it to practice over the years, I’m focusing on promoting the transformation of research methods of International Economics, presiding over establishing several application data base suitable for Chinese trade flow research, systematically introducing and improving measurement model and technology of trade flow, among which the in-depth discussion about academic ideas and application of gravity model has generated wide and lasting influence on domestic peers and especially young scholars; tracking research conclusions on time series data of Chinese foreign trade and national sector competitiveness obtained a good reputation after being provided to state leaders and relevant departments for decision reference; profoundly studying the influence of opening technology diffusion on production rate change among regions in China and foreign trade development models of transition economy with the background of technology diffusion etc.; comprehensively inspecting historical development of international trade model and the conflict with contemporary economic technical conditions; by integrating the latest scientific achievements about new Ricardian Model research in the field of International Economics and innovative discussion about the growth model of two parts, I’ve constructed solutions and measurement model for Rybczynski effect in order to resolve the influence of production factor mobility on output level described by production function under open economic conditions. Meanwhile, in the newly developed context of contemporary technology and economics, I’ve launched new research and computational simulation sequencing for a mainstream paradigm of international trade theory as well as constructed solutions for classical production function measure under the condition of discrepant production factor flow given by open economy. At the same time, facing new topics of China’s opening up in the new period of open economy development, I keep paying attention to the new issue of global balanced growth since financial crisis, launching systematic theory and practical problem research on the new influence of Chinese trade friction, and putting forward relevant solutions and policy design. I’ve initially constructed a theoretical hypothesis of total management trade with approximately stable analysis and tried to bring trade factors into this research from supply-side view for the first time in order to expand growth accounting model and inspect contributions of trade department on economic growth.
