Production systems, traditionally analyzed as almost independent national systems, are increasingly connected on a global scale. Only recently becoming available, the World Input-Output Database (WIOD) is one of the first efforts to construct the global multi-regional input-output (GMRIO) tables. By viewing the world input-output system as an interdependent network where the nodes are the individual industries in different economies and the edges are the monetary goods flows between industries… 

Key Economic Sectors and Their Transitions: Analysis of World Input-Output Network

It is argued that the network structure captured from the input-output tables is a key in determining whether and how microeconomic expansion or shocks propagate throughout the whole economy and shape aggregate outcomes.

Trends of the World Input and Output Network of Global Trade

This work takes the World Input Output Data set, which has values of the annual transactions between 40 different countries of 35 different sectors for the period of 15 years, and infer the time interdependence between countries and sectors, and forms a secondary network where the links are the positive correlations between different countries or sectors.

Random walks on the world input-output network

This article detects the communities in the WION and evaluates their significance using a random walk Markov chain approach, and discusses how different perspectives produce different results in terms of the pattern of integration.

Industrial Productivity Divergence and Input-Output Network Structures: Evidence from Japan 1973–2012

Since the early 1990s, there have been larger and increasing labor productivity differences across industries in Japan. More specifically, a clear pattern of sigma and beta divergence across

Measuring the impact of final demand on global production system based on Markov process

A New Vision of Classical Multi-regional Input–Output Models

This work presents classical multi-regional multi-sectoral input–output trade structures from the perspective of networks with emphasis on recovering the stable structure architecture of interrelations in the input– Output model.

This work develops a network-based analysis to consider a multi-regional IO network at regional and subregional level within a country, and calculates both traditional matrix-based IO measures and new network theory-based measures at this higher spatial resolution.

On the Structure of the World Economy: An Absorbing Markov Chain Approach

Results reveal that both the input and output chains exhibit the same quasi-stationary product distribution, and the expected proportion of time spent in a state before absorption is invariant to changes of the network type.



Propagation of economic shocks in input-output networks: a cross-country analysis.

It is found that the more a sector is globally central in the country network, the larger its impact and the largest European countries typically experience the largest avalanches, signaling their intrinsic higher vulnerability to economic shocks.

The Network Origins of Aggregate Fluctuations

This paper argues that in the presence of intersectoral input-output linkages, microeconomic idiosyncratic shocks may lead to aggregate fluctuations. In particular, it shows that, as the economy

The World Trade Network

This paper uses the tools of network analysis and graph theory to graphically and analytically represent the characteristics of world trade. The structure of the World Trade Network is compared over

Input-Output Approach in an Allocation System

An input-output transaction matrix may be conceived in terms of an equilibrium position of two sets of interacting forces. The broadest way in which we can define them is 'to denote one set of forces

Global Value Trees

It is found that the industry-level GVCs are indeed not chain-like but are better characterized by the tree topology, and the global value trees (GVTs) for all the industries available in the WIOD are computed.

Global networks of trade and bits

It is found that trade in bits displays a sparser and less hierarchical network structure, which is more similar to trade in high-skill manufactured goods than total trade, and distance plays a more prominent role in shaping the network of international trade in physical goods than trade in digital services.

The Rise of China in the International Trade Network: A Community Core Detection Approach

This work uses the modularity optimization method to detect communities and community cores in the ITN during the years 1995–2011 and provides a multilevel description of the evolution of the network where the global dynamics and the regional dynamics are related.

Fragmentation, Incomes and Jobs: An Analysis of European Competitiveness

Increasing fragmentation of production across borders is changing the nature of international competition. As a result, conventional indicators of competitiveness based on gross exports are becoming

Stochastic trade networks

A simple network model to describe the dynamic of the intensive and extensive margin of international trade flows is developed, suggesting that stylized facts are strongly interconnected across different levels of aggregation of trade data, so that a unifying explanation is called for.

Scale-free models for the structure of business firm networks.

It is argued that the observed behavior of the k -shell structure in the two industries is consistent with the coexistence of both preferential and random agreements in the evolution of industrial networks.
