Production Networks: A Primer

Vasco Carvalho () and Alireza Tahbaz-Salehi

Cambridge Working Papers in Economics from Faculty of Economics, University of Cambridge

Abstract: This article reviews the literature on production networks in macroeconomics. It presents the theoretical foundations for the roles of input-output linkages as a shock propagation channel and a mechanism for transforming microeconomic shocks into macroeconomic fluctuations. The article provides a brief guide to the growing literature that explores these themes empirically and quantitatively.

Keywords: networks; shock propagation; input-output linkages. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
