Social Mood Conference | Socionomics Foundation

May 4, 2016

Texas A&M University graduate students Greg Martinez, James Lewis and Jason Foster have found correlations in several countries between public health and social mood, as measured by stock markets. They presented their findings to the second annual Student Research Symposium, with the guidance of accounting professor (and socionomist) Dennis Elam.

Their research relied on Alan Hall’s studies of public health and mood. As student James Lewis said, “There are a lot of recent and striking examples.”

Professor Elam’s work is cultivating a socionomics-friendly academic environment. If you are a professor or student and want to introduce socionomics to the classroom, contact Ben Hall at
