post 2054 cascading effects in economic shifts

Cutting energy use to stay under 2 degrees will have cascading effects. The energy for commuting for example, lets say cut enough that some people can’t get to work (as we know people drive increasingly long distances). The building they drive to also un-heatable and coolable. Not useable. What happens? Mortgage doesn’t get paid, anks fail, product of the company doesn’t get delivered..A stable structure comes apart as fast as pickup sticks. We have built to get rid of redundancy and to rely on “just in time” supply chains. These are not very resilient.
Is there any coherent discussion of cascading effects in economics?
