The science of socionomics starts with an indisputable observation: How people FEEL influences what they DO. If you know how someone is feeling, you have a leg up on predicting how they will behave.

We zoom out. We look at how society is feeling so that we can understand—and even anticipate—how society behaves. As we track social mood in real time across the globe, we chart how its changes produce shifts in everything from the songs people want to hear to the leaders they elect to their desire for peace to their hunger for scandals to the trajectories of their stock markets, and more.

This is the great insight. It’s what enables the Socionomics Institute – and its members – to stay ahead of all others.

Each month the institute’s analysts show members how today’s – and tomorrow’s – most important trends will unfold. They give members an unrivaled perspective on the future, putting them miles ahead of herd.


As a member, you get everything the socionomists at the Institute produce, so you don’t miss a single insight. You get…

Robert R. Prechter

Robert R. Prechter, CMT, is known for developing a theory of social causality called socionomics and for his long career applying and enhancing the Wave Principle, R.N. Elliott’s fractal model of financial pricing.

Prechter has made presentations on socionomic theory at the London School of Economics, the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, MIT, Trinity College Dublin, Georgia Tech, SUNY and various academic and financial conferences. In 2005, Prechter created the Socionomics Institute, which is dedicated to research and the application of socionomics, and the Socionomics Foundation, which supports academic research in the field.

Prechter graduated from Yale University in 1971, joined the Market Analysis Department of Merrill Lynch in New York in 1975 and founded Elliott Wave International in 1979, where he has published monthly market analysis in The Elliott Wave Theorist. Prechter has served as a member of the board of the Market Technicians Association, as the MTA’s President in 1990-1991 and as a member of the advisory board of the MTA’s Educational Foundation. He is a member of the Triple Nine Society and the Shakespeare Oxford Society.

Prechter has authored, edited or contributed to 18 books. Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior has been translated into a dozen languages, and Conquer the Crash: You Can Survive and Prosper in a Deflationary Depression was a New York Times bestseller. His latest work, The Socionomic Theory of Finance, aims to replace conventional financial and macroeconomic theory with an internally and externally consistent paradigm based on socionomics.

Hall wrote the lead articles for the inaugural issues of The Socionomist in May and June 2009. Since then, his research has showcased the wide range and deep applicability of the socionomic perspective.
