Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to our Special Issue devoted to understanding the advancements in the field of economic networks. This issue is seeking papers that focus on understanding and advancing micro- and macro-economic phenomena by using network science, theory and tools. Recent geopolitical and global challenges have demonstrated an interconnected complex global eco-system. With interdependent issues such as interest rates and inflation, energy arms races and the acceleration of gas prices, it is still important to identify more in order to understand the structure and dynamics of these macro-economic systems. Furthermore, at the micro level, we need to understand the complexity of decision making and how this is embedded in social and economic relationships, and how macro pressures change interconnected behaviour leading to unplanned and unintentional outcomes. To that end, this Special Issue is also concerned with furthering insight into understanding micro-economic transaction networks, how their historical structures influence economic behaviour, and whether social structure leads to economic action or economic action leads to the creation of social structure. Finally, papers focusing on how micro transaction networks ultimately influence the macro-level networked markets are also of interest. The Special Issue is interdisciplinary in nature and cuts across different academic fields, connected by an understanding of the importance of networks in economic thinking.
