Alan Hall’s two-part in-depth study, “A Socionomic Study of Epidemic Disease,” shows how negative social mood establishes conditions precipitating outbreaks of epidemic diseases. Part 1 explores a 600-year history of diseases in bear markets and how society becomes vulnerable. Part 2 focuses on the psychological and physiological mechanisms by which negative social mood compromises human immunity, charts illustrating the timing and similarity of epidemics to financial manias and more potential threats on the horizon.
