Systemic risk measured by systems resiliency to initial shocks
This study proposes a new approach to the analysis of #systemicrisk in #financialsystems, which is based on the #probability amount of exogenous shock that can be absorbed by the system before it deteriorates, rather than the size of the impact that exogenous events can exhibit. The authors use a linearized version of DebtRank to estimate the onset of financial distress, and compute localized and uniform exogenous shocks using spectral graph theory. They also extend their analysis to heterogeneous shocks using #montecarlo#simulations. The authors argue that their approach is more general and natural, and provides a standard way to express #failure#risk in financial systems.
