Many economic activities in a modern society are supported by complex inter-firm transaction networks. Recently, large-scale transaction network data have become available, and the macro impact of inter-firm networks is analyzed both theoretically and empirically.
In this workshop, young researchers from abroad report the latest research results such as the inter-firm network formation in a general equilibrium, responses of networks against various policies, shock propagations under imperfect competition, and the dynamics of transaction relationships in a firm life cycle.
