INI Seminar Room 1
This talk will outline how a network approach to systemic risk which draws on epidemiological and ecological techniques can shed light on contagion in financial systems. Highlighting results from a few different models, it will explain how such an approach can be used to help understand the causes and dynamics of some aspects of the global financial crisis. And it will draw out lessons for policy, explaining how a macroprudential approach towards regulation may be important in containing systemic risk.
