Disciplinary Construction and Changing Demand for Talents: The Development Trajectory of the Public Finance in the USA and Japan

Jing XIAO, Aiwei ZHANG


This paper analyzed the development trajectory of fiscal discipline in the USA and Japan respectively and compared the change of demand for finance specialty talents in the two countries. It was found that discipline development and demand for talents in the field of public finance showed convergence and consistency between the two countries. Based on the above, there are some proposals about disciplinary construction of the Public Finance as follows: first, public issues should be discussed from the individual perspective; second, the empirical analysis methods and public management methods should be the focuses of learning; third, finance classes should focus on the study of publicity and public logic as well.
