Koo was born in Kobe. His father, Koo Kwang-ming, was an activist in the Taiwan independence movement then living in exile in Japan, and the brother of the prominent Taiwanese businessman Koo Chen-fu. Koo lived in Tokyo for 13 years in his youth, attended the University of California, Berkeley and graduate school at Johns Hopkins University, and worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York before joining Nomura in 1984 as its first expatriate researcher.

Saying Koo's 2011 "causes, cure, and politics" publication "has gone viral on the Web", Landon Thomas in the New York Times featured Koo's analysis in late 2011. Thomas was discussing the divergence between the way the U.S. and British governments addressed their banking crises in the 2008-9 financial crisis and the way Europe was beginning to do in late 2011.
