Shock Transmission Mechanism of the Economic Crisis in East Asia : An Application of International Input-Output Analysis
This paper investigates the impacts of the 2008 economic crisis on industries in East Asia. By using the updated Asian international input-output table for 2008, the paper attempts to identify the transmission mechanism and the magnitude of impact of the crisis on industries in East Asia. The analyses reveal that the crisis significantly affected industrial output of the nine East Asian countries. In particular, the countries which are deeply involved in production networks were affected most seriously. Moreover, the analyses show that the impact was transmitted to East Asian industries considerably through the â€œtriangular tradeâ€ , in which China imports parts and components from neighboring East Asian countries and then exports final products to the U.S. and EU markets.
