Project Description

Trade credit occurs between firms supplying inputs and firms purchasing those inputs on the promise of delayed payment. Customers may fail to repay their supplier on time or at all. In the latter case, the trade credit becomes delinquent. The purpose of this project is to study trade-credit delinquency and its macroeconomic implications, including its role in explaining observed economic fluctuations.
