Network-based measures as leading indicators of market instability: the case of the Spanish stock market
This paper identifies links between time series data of stock returns for the purpose of understanding the structure of the market and for identifying early-warning signals of forthcoming market stress.
This paper uses network theory to develop models for credit decisions in group lending schemes.
This paper systematically reviews the theoretical literature on interbank networks.
The journal’s second issue features three very different approaches that use network theory to understand economic and financial phenomena.
This paper develops a framework based on integrated national accounting data that aims to capture linkages between different sectors of the economy. The resulting framework provides a useful platform for static policy simulations and shock transmission...
This paper considers a network of cross-border SWIFT message flows where nodes are the countries in which the sending and receiving banks are domiciled. The authors analyze how the payment flows reflect or predict various aspects of the real economies.
