1. Managi, S., Zhuo Chen, Social-Economic Impacts of Epidemic Diseases, Technological Forecasting and Social Change,, 2022.02, COVID-19 has impacted our world in all aspects of economic, social, technological, environmental, and international relations. On the economic side, the growth rate of global GDP in 2020 was −3.5%. On the policy side, new policies such as social distancing policy and (legally binding/non-legally binding) emergency declarations are being implemented simultaneously worldwide. This special issue collects studies on the socioeconomic impact of the spread of infectious diseases such as new coronaviruses..

15. Studying the Effect of Deposit-Refund Systems on Demand for Reusable PET Bottles through Consumer Surveys
Reusing PET bottles can decrease the burden on the environment when compared to one-way use if the rate of collecting reusable bottles is high. In Japan, certain policies have been considered for attaining a high collection rate. One such policy employs deposit-refund systems. However, the addition of the deposit amount entails an increase in the price of the products contained in the reusable bottles, thereby raising concerns regarding a decrease in the demand for such products. This paper analyzes these concerns by studying a demonstration experiment of reusable PET bottles, which uses the deposit-refund system and was conducted by the Ministry of the Environment, Japan. We administered questionnaires to consumers in the experiment, and based on the data acquired from the questionnaires, we empirically analyzed the effect of deposit-refund systems on the demand for the products contained in reusable PET bottles. The results carried two implications. First, in home delivery services, the bottles were sold in units of four bottles per box, and the deposit per bottle was 20 yen. Under this service, when deposit-refund systems were applied to the sale of the products contained in reusable PET bottles, the demand of these products decreases if consumers felt that the prices of the products became high by the deposit-refund systems. Second, despite the consumers' notion that the deposit amount was high, the demand remained steady..
16. Subjective Well-being Index and Environment : Empirical Analysis Using Survey Data in Japan
This study examines the relationship between subjective well-being index and environmental index after eliminating the effect of economic factors, social and demographic factors, and psychological traits. We use survey data in Tokyo and Kanagawa prefecture besides local air pollution data monitored near each sample's residence. The result implies that reduction of photochemical oxidant has the possibility to improve happiness..
