This project will conduct an empirical analysis of financial intermediation and inter-firm networks primarily using firm-level data. Many of the research topics in the project are policy-oriented and include the effects of the so-called double-loan problem tied to earthquake damage and the effects of government-sector participation in the lending markets. At the same time, the topics intend to make clear the fundamental issues that relate to corporate financing and inter-firm networks, such as the form of bank-firm relationships at the time of the financial crisis, consideration of methods of reducing carbon-dioxide emissions using inter-firm network data, and the relationship between transactions between companies and industrial clusters.
