Socionomic Causality in Politics

How Social Mood Influences Everything from Elections to Geopolitics

Whether you wish to understand the actions of governments or to get elected to office, Socionomic Causality in Politics gives you the tools to be at the forefront of the most promising work in the field of behavioral studies.

Be at the forefront of the most promising work in the field of behavioral studies

Suppose you had a single framework that enabled you to understand why certain candidates win elections and why nations go to war. And why a country’s internal politics can be peaceful one minute and beset with strikes, protests and terrorism the next. Such is the value of Socionomic Causality in Politics.

What Readers Say

I strongly recommend that both of these books [Socionomic Studies of Society and Culture and Socionomic Causality in Politics] be used by colleges and universities in all courses related to the social sciences.

— Larry R. Vandervert, Ph.D (Pyschology); Fellow, American Psychological Association; Owner, American Nonlinear Systems

This is certainly the most iconoclastic work on the subject of politics since Machiavelli’s The Prince. No matter what your personal politics, these essays contain more truth than any dozen learned books on the topic. As a former elected local government official myself, I can say that this book really … give[s] you the real reasons that determine elections and policy positions world-wide. If you have never liked the subject of politics, this book could change your mind.

The book is a must read for all those who are interested in mass psychology processes and their dynamics. It is exciting to see how a collective sentiment can trigger protests, riots and geopolitical crises.

Robert Prechter

Robert R. Prechter’s name is familiar to market observers the world over. Since founding EWI in 1979, Prechter has focused on applying and enhancing the Wave Principle, R.N. Elliott’s fractal model of financial pricing. Prechter shares his market insights in The Elliott Wave Theorist, one of the longest-running financial publications in existence today. Prechter has developed a theory of social causality called socionomics, whose main hypothesis is endogenously regulated waves of social mood prompt social actions. In other words, events don’t shape moods; moods shape events. Prechter has authored and edited several academic papers. He has written 18 books on finance and socionomics, including a New York Times bestseller.

The Socionomics Institute

The Socionomics Institute (SI) is a research center dedicated to using data on social mood to understand and anticipate social trends. Since 2009, it has published the monthly magazine The Socionomist which prepares readers for trends in politics, pop culture, public health and more. SI’s five-book series introduces readers to Robert Prechter’s socionomic theory of social causality and its applications.

Socionomic Studies of Society and Culture

Suppose you could understand why stars who rule the airwaves and movie screens one minute can be catapulted to obscurity the next. And why genres of TV shows become popular overnight. How and why trends fluctuate in the attendance of sporting events; the next big thing in fashion; and the styles, sizes and colors of cars that people buy. With dozens of examples drawn from history, Socionomic Studies of Society and Culture reveals a remarkably simple way to do exactly that.
