Network responsibility: from pandemics to financial crises.
Terms like “viral” and “infectious” are increasingly being used even outside their field of origin—the field of study of infectious diseases such as COVID-19. And it’s no coincidence: From financial crises to the study of fake news and online advertising, there are many fields that share more than just a vocabulary with epidemiology. In all these cases, in fact, the phenomena that occur on the network are observed and studied. And these networks, even if they are very different from each other, share some basic characteristics that allow researchers, but also all members of our complex contemporary societies, to better understand what is happening around them.
