Almost everyone believes that “bad news” and negative events cause the future to feel less certain. Socionomists understand that it’s precisely backwards: Negative mood generates “bad news” AND impels people to view their future as uncertain. The August 2012 Socionomist explained that uncertainty first appears in the stock market — and eventually shows up in the economy. The January 2018 issue takes a follow-up look at uncertainty, which continues to be a topic of interest to academics — and, we believe, every independent thinker like yourself, as well.
If you look closely, you can see patterns in social mood that help you predict social trends. Learn more with the Socionomics Premier Membership.
