We use the Least Absolute Shrinkage and Selection Operator (LASSO) quantile regression technique to construct and analyse the complete tail risk connectedness network of the whole US industry system. We also investigate the empirical relationship between input-output linkages and the tail risk spillovers among US industries. Our findings identify the tail-risk drivers, tail-risk takers, and tail-risk distributors among industries and confirm that the actual trade flow between industries is a major driver of their tail risk connectedness.
