LIDS-SSRC Seminar Series: Big Data, Big Brother, and Systemic Risk Management in the Financial System
May 5, 2015 | 4:00 pm | 32-155

A recurring theme among the many narratives of the financial crisis of 2008 is the complexity of the financial system and the failure of private- and public-sector policies to anticipate and attenuate the crisis. This failure may be a symptom of the emergence of a new type of risk to...

LIDS-SSRC Seminar: Systemic Risk and Network Formation
April 21, 2015 | 4:00 pm | 32-155

In this seminar, Prof. Rakesh Vohra introduced a model of endogenous network formation and systemic risk in which strategic agents form networks that efficiently trade off the possibility of systemic risk with the benefits of trade. Efficiency is a consequence of the high risk of contagion, which forces agents to...
