Taro Aso (麻生太郎, born September 20, 1940) has been the 92nd Prime Minister of Japan since September 24, 2008. On September 22, 2008, Aso was elected to succeed Yasuo Fukuda as President of LDP. On September 24, the Diet elected Aso as Prime Minister.
Aso first graduated from the Faculty of Politics and Economics at Gakushuin University. He then studied in the United States at Stanford University, but was cut off by his family, who feared he was becoming too Americanized. After making his way back to Japan on a ship, he left once more to study at the London School of Economics.
