type="main"> This paper uses firm-level data to examine how supply chain networks affected the recovery of firms from the Great East Japan Earthquake. Extensive supply chains can negatively affect recovery through higher vulnerability to network disruption and positively through support from trading partners, easier search for new partners, and general benefits of agglomeration. Our results indicate that networks with firms outside of the impacted area contributed to the earlier resumption of… Expand
Energy and resilience: The effects of endogenous interdependencies on trade network formation across space among major Japanese firms
TLDR
It is found that when firms changed their partners, they preferred firms that were popular among other firms, that had partners in common with them and that also bought some products or services from them, which concur with a criticism that Japanese firms avoid external actors and exhibit inflexibility in reorganizing their networks in times of need.

Firm-Level Simulation of the Propagation of Economic Shocks Through Supply-Chain Networks
Social and economic networks can be a channel of negative shocks and thus deteriorate resilience and sustainability of our society. This study focuses on supply chains, or supplier--customer networksExpand
Supply Chain Disruptions: Evidence from the Great East Japan Earthquake
This paper quantifies the spillover effect of exogenous shocks, such as earthquakes, on other firms through the supply chain network. Combining micro data on inter-firm transaction networks andExpand

Fragmentation of production amplifies systemic risks from extreme events in supply-chain networks
TLDR
It is found that prescribing firm-specific inventory sizes based on their position in the supply chain mitigates systemic risk more effectively than setting the same inventory requirements for all firms. Expand
