Diego Espinoza

“Networks are the new Archimedian levers. With the right network designs, we can move the world.”

For far too long, Diego was a finance guy. He was Director of European Research at Sanford C. Bernstein & Company. He was also Portfolio Manager at Scudder Investments, where he co-led the $10 billion Global Equity product. Before joining Scudder, Diego was a #1-ranked (by Institutional Investor) Latin America equity research analyst at Morgan Stanley & Company. Mr. Espinosa has an M.B.A. in finance from The Wharton School and an M.A. in international relations from Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies.

When he predicted the housing credit crash and financial crisis of 2006 – 2009, he realized the dangerous poverty of traditional economics and financial theory and began his ongoing exploration of complex systems science and network design as the most powerful current levers to move the world.

He is now a senior lecturer at the University of San Diego where he teaches network-inspired courses on the financial system and investing and an applied complexity course in Economics. He is the co-founder of the Hygia project, applying network and blockchain design to combat diabetes and he runs Cadena Network Design, which among other things developed “The Network Experience,” an immersive workshop to help people understand how to see the world through the powerful new lens of networks.
