Input-output-based measures of systemic importance

Abstract: The analyses of intersectoral linkages of Leontief [ The Structure of the American Economy: 1919-1929 , 1941] and Hirschman [ The Strategy of Economic Development , 1958] provide a natural way to study the transmission of risk among interconnected banks and to measure their systemic importance. In this paper, we show how elements from classic input-output analysis can be applied to banking and how to derive six indicators that capture different aspects of systemic importance, using a simple numerical example for illustration. We also discuss the relationship with other approaches, most notably network centrality measures, both formally and by means of a simulated network.
