This chapter presents an agent-based model for studying the interactions between the financial system and the real economy. This model also contributes to enriching our understanding of potential vulnerabilities and the paths through which economic crises can propagate across economic and financial networks. Combining an agent-based model with network analysis can help to shed light on how a failure in a firm propagates through dynamic credit networks and leads to a cascade of bankruptcies.

Keywords:   agent-based economics, credit relationship, net-worth, balance sheet, leverage, defaulting cascade, evolving credit networks
