The 2011 Socionomics Summit
If you are one of the many individuals who were unable to attend the summit, we have great news: It is not too late to partake.
You can experience every engaging moment the packed-house audience saw and heard during the April 2011 Socionomics Summit: each one of the 12 speakers; all of their charts, slides and handouts; plus the Q&A sessions between the speakers and audience. This first-ever socionomics conference was professionally recorded and is available in a studio-mastered set of 3 DVDs.
The DVD set includes all six action-packed hours of the Summit as attendees experienced it. Yet in a real sense, the DVD set promises an educational encounter that is better than the one attendees received in person. You can watch and listen at your convenience, and you’ll appreciate the ability to re-watch the fast-paced sessions as often as you choose.
The DVD set presents the latest developments in socionomic theory and application. Here are just some of the speakers and their topics (including several scientists whose work has already captured the attention of the media):
- EWI’s Robert Prechter delivered the Summit’s opening and closing remarks. His morning remarks offered a powerful contrast of the socionomic perspective vs. conventional notions. In the afternoon, Bob spelled out stunning real-world examples of the fractal nature of herding in financial markets.
- Georgia Institute of Technology Professor Eric Gilbert: “Widespread Worry and the Stock Market.” Gilbert’s landmark 2010 study showed how blog posts on livejournal.com predict market changes.
- Indiana University professor Johan Bollen and Huina Mao: “Measurements of public mood states predict the DJIA.” Bollen and Mao’s analysis of social mood exhibited in Twitter feeds predicted changes in the closing values of the DJIA at an accuracy of 86.7%.
- Successful hedge fund manager Scott Reamer: “Socionomics as an Investment Philosophy: the ‘Unified Field Theory’ of Economics, Physics, and Sociology.” Reamer gave his thoughts on why the socionomic hypothesis is critical to dealing with life’s inherent uncertainties – in markets, in academia, and in life.
- Scholar and best-selling author of Mood Matters, John Casti: “Anticipation of Extreme Events in Human Society.” Casti explained how the social mood of a population is a leading indicator of collective social events of all types, ranging from trends in popular culture to the rise and collapse of world powers.
- Emmy award-winning Minyanville sage Kevin Depew: “Zombinomics: How Social Mood Has Us Hungry for Flesh and Brains.” Depew offered a humorous and insightful analysis of how a negative social mood takes pop culture into dark places.
- EWI’s Asia analyst Mark Galasiewski: “Emerging Markets and Violence.” Mark explained how he combined his knowledge of political trends in the Middle East with his Elliott wave analysis of markets in the region to make stunningly accurate forecasts in both arenas.
