Abstract: Haiku represents a special and short form of Japanese understood by specialists as the most efficient form of economic speech. The most important strength of haiku is that it expresses so much by so few words. A wide range of poets, from Japanese natives such as Matsuo Bashō to Romanian playwright Marin Sorescu, have practiced writing haiku simply to enhance their personal abilities of observation. Until now, the exploration of the link between haiku and economics has not been much studied. This article presents a relative new field of research, "haiku economics," and provides advice on how to improve teaching skills through using haiku poetry. The paper also makes references on unusual chances given to students majoring in economics and business administration to express themselves, by writing and reciting haiku poetry about economic theory, fact, and experience. The examples within the paper are describing the benefits of explaining economic concepts with the help of haiku, which transcend over the technical understanding of the notions but also give a special emotional state of optimism and harmony specific to the Japanese culture and poetry.
