Contagion In Economics

Contagion, in financial terms, refers to the diffusion of economic booms, and can occur both domestically and globally. It is basically a spread of an economic crisis from one region to another, and spreads on an international level due to the global market interdependence.

The term contagion was coined during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, but it was occurring namelessly even during the Great Depression in the 1930s.
