NOTE: This Working Paper should not be reported as representing the views of the European Central Bank (ECB). The views expressed are those of the authors and do not necessarily reﬂ ect those of the ECB. Macroprudential Research Network This paper presents research conducted within the Macroprudential Research Network (MaRs). The network is composed of econo- mists from the European
System of Central Banks (ESCB), i.e. the 27 national central banks of the European Union (EU) and the Euro- pean Central Bank. The objective of MaRs is to develop core conceptual frameworks, models and/or tools supporting macro-prudential supervision in the EU. The research is carried out in three work streams: 1. Macro-ﬁ nancial models linking ﬁ nancial stability and the performance of the economy; 2. Early warning systems and systemic risk indicators; 3. Assessing contagion risks. MaRs is chaired by Philipp Hartmann (ECB). Paolo Angelini (Banca d’Italia), Laurent Clerc (Banque de France), Carsten Detken (ECB) and Katerina Šmídková (Czech National Bank) are workstream coordinators. Xavier Freixas (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) acts as external consultant and Angela Maddaloni (ECB) as Secretary. The refereeing process of this paper has been coordinated by a team composed of Cornelia Holthausen, Kalin Nikolov and Bernd Schwaab (all ECB). The paper is released in order to make the research of MaRs generally available, in preliminary form, to encourage comments and sug- gestions prior to ﬁ nal publication. The views expressed in the paper are the ones of the author(s) and do not necessarily reﬂ ect those of the ECB or of the ESCB.
