His areas of research and teaching interests include international business, technology and environmental management, Japanese and Asian Economies, corporate governance, economic behavior of firms and households and econometrics.
In his latest book entitled Changing Corporate Governance Practices in China and Japan: Adaptations of Anglo-American Practices, Dr. Nakamura and his collaborators discuss how corporate governance practices in these countries are adapting to Anglo-American practices and conclude that these adaptations are selective. Both countries continue to retain their own local corporate governance practices in some areas.
