Socionomics goes beyond the ‘what’ of human events to pursue the deeper question of ‘why.’ Why does social mood wax and wane? Why does history seem to repeat itself in patterns?
It seems there is an evolutionary explanation. Here’s an excerpt from Chapter 6 of Robert Prechter’s Socionomic Theory of Finance:
“Social actions motivated by social mood serve to keep the human species motivated, challenged and robust. … Waves of social mood probably serve an evolutionary purpose in imposing stresses and rewards upon humans at fractal intervals, thus keeping individuals repeatedly challenged yet hopeful and motivated to strive.”
If you look closely, you can see patterns in social mood that help you predict social trends. Learn more with the Socionomics Premier Membership.
