Title of research: An Experimental Study of Financial Contagion in Networks

The 2008 global financial crisis highlighted the crucial role that the network architecture of the financial system plays in determining systemic contagion. The aim of this project is to conduct a series of experiments to investigate how different network structures affect the probability of systemic contagion in experimental asset markets. A particular focus will be on how (i) market participants’ knowledge about the network and (ii) the structure of the trading environment interact with the network structure to cause financial contagion.
