Uncovering the Network Complexity in Input-Output Linkages among Sectors in European Countries

The global economic system is a highly interlinked network, comprised of heterogeneous industries in different countries. In such a complex system, a negative shock to the production of any industrial sector may have two distinct effects on the remaining industrial sectors: on the one hand by increasing/decreasing production it will demand more/less inputs from other […]

Financialization of Europe: a comparative perspective

We provide evidence about the process of financialization in Europe in the period 1999-2016. We combine different sources of data (ECB Data Warehouse, BvD Orbis Database, Bank Scope) and we compute different indicators that allow us to grasp different features of the financialization process in the Euro Area and in a group of selected countries. […]

Rational Heuristics? Expectations and Behaviors in Evolving. Economies with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents

We analyze the individual and macroeconomic impacts of heterogeneous expectations and action rules within an agent-based model populated by heterogeneous, interacting firms. Agents have to cope with a complex evolving economy characterized by deep uncertainty resulting from technical change, imperfect information coordination hurdles and structural breaks. In these circumstances, we find that neither individual nor […]

What if supply-side policies are not enough? The perverse interaction of flexibility and austerity

In this work we develop a set of labour market and fiscal policy experiments upon the labour and credit augmented “Schumpeter meeting Keynes” agent-based model. The labour market is declined under two institutional variants, the “Fordist” and the “Competitive” setups meant to capture the historical transition from the Fordist toward the post “Thatcher- Reagan” period. […]

Endogenous growth and global divergence in a multi-country agent-based model

In this paper we present a multi-country, multi-industry agent-based model investigating the different growth patterns of interdependent economies. Each country features a Schumpeterian engine of endogenous technical change which interacts with Keyneasian/Kaldorian demand generation mechanisms. National growth trajectories are driven by firms’ accumulation of technological knowledge, which in turn also leads to emergent specialization patterns […]

Validation of Agent-Based Models in Economics and Finance

Since the influential survey by Windrum et al. (2007), research on empirical validation of agent-based models in economics has made substantial advances, thanks to a constant flow of high-quality contributions. This Chapter attempts to take stock of such recent literature to offer an updated critical review of existing validation techniques. We sketch a simple theoretical […]

Faraway, so Close: Coupled Climate and Economic Dynamics in an Agent-Based Integrated Assessment Model

In this paper we develop the first agent-based integrated assessment model, which offers an alternative to standard, computable general-equilibrium frameworks. The Dystopian Schumpeter meeting Keynes (DSK) model is composed of heterogeneous firms belonging to capital-good, consumption-good and energy sectors. Production and energy generation lead to greenhouse gas emissions, which affect temperature dynamics in a non-linear […]
