5 “ Levy, Levy and Solomon’s ’Microscopic Simulation of Financial Markets’ points us towards the future of financial economics. If we restrict ourselves to models which can be solved analytically, we will be modelling for our mutual entertainment, not to maximize explanatory or predictive power.” HARRY MARKOWITZ Nobel Laureate in Economics

6 - lose explanatory power : which of the myriads of microspopic features is responsible for the macroscopic effects? TWO systems that one does not understand: the initial one and its computer copy. Agent Models with too many details => - lose predictability: can predict anything you wish to by tuning many uncalibrable parameters. - By representing exactly in the computer a system that one does not understand one ends up with

7 Start with solvable multi-agent models which keep only the individual features involved in amplification micro->macro Autocatalytic (“procyclic”, self- reinforcing) feedback loops Still obtain and understand macroscopic resulting features while neglect the microscopic clutter. Solution:

8 Plan for the next 15 min: -Examples of Autocatalytic Feedback loops - Their effects - Models where these loops interact - Their Predictions - Quantitative Empirical validation of the predictions.

9 Types of Autocatalytic Feedback loops (described and explained in the sequel): - Between firms and the system as such (similar to Minsky accelerator) - Between interacting firms (e.g. domino, spill-over, diffusion) - Between firm and itself (e.g. self- regulation rich get richer, poor get poorer)

10 Social percolation models S Solomon, G Weisbuch, L de Arcangelis, N Jan and D Stauffer Physica A: 277 (1-2) ( 2000 ) 239 Market percolation J. Goldenberg;, B. Libai, S. Solomon, N. Jan, D. Stauffer Physica A 284 ( 2000 ) 335{347 Between interacting firms (e.g. domino, spill-over, diffusion)

11 Feedback loop between firms Market Percolation: (e.g. Trade Credit) Each firm has K trade partners Fraction  PONZI of firms susceptible to failure contagion “Ponzi”= firm who cannot pay the interest on its debt from its earnings: earnings < debt x interest rate or r=interest rate>earnings/debt We assume a Ponzi will fail by contagion if one of its debtors fail.

16 CRISIS PERCOLATION PHASE TRANSITION Until now firms had similar size. We make them heterogeneous later

17 K  Ponzi =1/30  Ponzi =1/15  Ponzi =1/ N FAILED High Leverage (High Ponzi Density)  PONZI >> 0 + High Connectivity ( Many trade partners) K>>1 Increase the probability of failure By favoring contagion avalanches Crisis Percolation PhaseTransition

18 K  Ponzi =1/30  Ponzi =1/15  Ponzi =1/ N FAILED Mainstream economics maintains that diversification ( K>>1 ) is always good. According to our very simple model (refined later) diversification (K>>1) by itself is neither good or bad : it depends on the state of the economy. If you are in a boom or in the process of adopting new technologies, large K will amplify / accelerate them too. Large  PONZI and large K are dangerous only if they lead to a large number of pairs of Ponzi being connected => chain reaction.
