Abstract

In this paper we explore contagion from one institution to another thatcan stem from the existence of a network of financial contracts. Informational con-tagion, as a second possible form of systemic risk, has been also considered. Theintricate web of claims and obligations linking the balance sheets of financial institutions and consumers’ behavior have been modeled in a structure that reflects thecomplexities of observed financial networks and the diffusion of crisis expectations.The agent based model we propose provides a suitable microeconomic frameworkfor analyzing the relation between the structure of a financial network, i.e. the size and the pattern of obligations, and its exposure to systemic risk.
