Dr. Y.F. LUK received his A.B. in economics from the University of Chicago, and Ph.D. from Cornell University. He was previously a lecturer in economics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Y.F.’s first contact with economics was an economics course he took in his third year as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago. He was greatly impressed by the perspective that economics provides in understanding human behaviour, and the depth that economic analysis can go beyond the surface of social interactions. As a result, he changed his major from history to economics and went on to study economics at the graduate level. Y.F. has great interests in teaching economics. He enjoys showing students the conclusions reached at through economic analysis, which are at times quite different from what intuition alone would imply. His efforts in teaching won him a teaching fellowship while as a graduate student at Cornell University.
Y.F.’s academic interests are in monetary theory, banking and finance, and international finance. He is also interested in the interface of economics and finance, that is, how the functioning of the financial system affects economic performance, and vice versa. In addition, he has also been studying the economy of Hong Kong and the economy of Mainland China.
In the past few years, Y.F. has developed several common core courses: “Hong Kong and China’s Economic Development”, “China in the Global Economy” and “Economic Globalization: Issues and Challenges”. He has also been teaching “Economics for Financial Analysis” for the Master of Finance program and “Global Economy” for the MBA program.
