I want to understand when and why multi-way clustering is necessary.

Could anyone give a good example that provides intuition of when and why to use multi-way clustering that also illustrates why clustering at a group level is not sufficient?

    $\begingroup$ Also, you might want to have a look at the empirical limitations of clustering: economics.mit.edu/files/11355, in other words: when is clustering a bad idea. $\endgroup$
