|Title:||Financial market contagion||Authors:||Kelly, Morgan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/524||Date:||2008||Abstract:||The power of the metaphor of contagion—that beliefs, actions, and strategies spread among economic agents like pathogens among biological organisms— causes it to recur in disparate areas of economics. This article focusses on four applications of contagion to economics: social influence or memoryless learning; Bayesian social learning; strategy choice in coordination games; and the spread of crises in international financial markets.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Palgrave Macmillan||Copyright (published version):||Copyright 2008 Palgrave Macmillan||Subject LCSH:||Economics--Sociological aspects||DOI:||10.1057/9780230226203.0571||Other versions:||http://dx.doi.org/doi:10.1057/9780230226203.0571
