2016 World trade network. Two countries A and B are related by a directed link, the direction of which is given by its curvature. If A points to B following the bent path in the clockwise direction (A B) then A exports to B, otherwise, i.e. (A B), B exports to A. The width of the link is proportional to the exportation volume in the WTN from the source country to the target country. The colors of country nodes range from red (blue) for a country going to bankruptcy at stage τ=0 (τ=τ) in the case of a bankruptcy threshold κ=0.1 and for the following crisis scenario: once a country goes to bankruptcy, it is prevented to import products with the exception of petroleum and gas (see details in the “Contagion model” section). Only transactions above 1010 USD are shown. Most of the Polynesian islands have been removed, here and in the following figures, to improve visibility
