As the world was falling apart, a towering maestro gave the world an exquisite composition that both captured and reflected the grievous sentiment of that time. This week's episode of Pop Trends, Prices Culture tells part one of an exceptional two-part story. Plus, a link to the free video we call "History's Hidden Engine."

The public loves portrayals of vigilante justice. Memorable vigilantes are sometimes a ‘good guy,’ other times they are … something else. Why? Where did those characters come from?

More than 80 percent of economists predicted it would happen. The Fed would raise interest rates. It would be the 'All Clear' signal for the economy. But... it didn't happen. The entire economics profession was caught off guard. Listen to the 'follow up story' you won't get anyplace else.

Just before he was re-elected, the President assured the public that America would not go to war. But go to war it did -- complete with harsh anti-immigration laws, and tens of thousands of naturalized citizens in "relocation camps." No, this isn't a re-run of our previous episode. Different president, different war -- but social mood was very much alike.

Sep 15, 2015

For the past 100 years, social mood has been pivotal in America’s decisions to go to war. This episode of Pop Trends, Price Culture shows just how true this is was for World War I – despite...

"However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results." That's a great quote, even if it wasn't from Winston Churchill. Another way to put is, 'Your theory needs to be consistent with real outcomes'...

At a glance, this week's news items have nothing in common: Religion, a police shooting, defaults on student loans, and immigration. If you're a regular reader, you know that we sometimes bundle topics which don't appear to "fit." But then they do...

Immigration policy has been an epic contradiction all thru U.S. history. America is “a nation of immigrants,” yet major political trends in America frequently include outbursts of anti-immigration...

A $50 billion unbuilt canal. A just-built, end-of-days 'Bemusement Park.' A hand-picked, classic 'movie-as-metaphor' that captures the dark market mood of August 2015. Yes, that's the range of stories which comprise our news selection this week...

Aug 28, 2015

“October falls in August this year.” That’s how a colleague described the recent global financial market chaos. Financial assets have lost value across the board – in a word, Deflation. Investors...

When markets go crazy -- and lots of markets have been crazy lately -- it tends to dominate the financial news. Yet in all that coverage, what you won't read is, "Mood is shifting..."

If the U.S. housing market has “recovered,” then why has homeownership just fallen to its lowest level in 50 years -- after years of record low interest rates? Hint: “Markets flooded with credit often morph from an economic market to a financial one.” The psychology of consumption, investment and excess credit have collided, and Pop Trends, Price Culture considers the outcome.

Instant replay in sports is a great use of technology -- not only to re-watch good plays, but also to remind us how much we fail to see even while we're watching. It's no stretch to say that socionomics is a kind of instant replay for collective trends and events...

Aug 14, 2015

Reports about this week’s biggest global finance news all used the same basic headline: ‘China Devalues Currency!’ But, we think that headline doesn’t ‘get it’ – since it fails to identify the blunt truth about the bigger trend.

Aug 9, 2015

Social mood is trending mostly positive -- so keep an eye out not only for which stories make the news, but also how that news gets reported. Listen on to see what we see in this week's news.

The meltdown of China’s stock market is arguably the biggest global financial story so far in 2015. The decline began barely six weeks ago, yet the Shanghai index has lost nearly one-third of its value.

"A rising mood leads to a substantial consensus in politics, culture and social vision; a falling mood leads to a divided radical climate." So said Bob Prechter in the "Components of Mood" chapter of his seminal book...

A few provocative questions: Just over a month ago, 9 people were murdered in a church in Charleston, SC. What if people there had responded by looting and destroying property?

Jul 17, 2015

Nations can pursue peace or make war for countless reasons: Trade, borders, weapons, access to resources... even grievances from a previous war. Nations are not people, yet people and nations alike can be predisposed to respond to a provocation with patience, or in anger. Where does that predisposition come from?

To “demonize the enemy” is a staple of war propaganda. But, you don’t need a war to call your enemy demonic. Case in point, the United States and Iran for the past 35 years – as in, “The Great Satan” vs. “The Axis of Evil.” Each country really did use language that describes a mortal foe. So what on earth explains recent news of these two enemies shaking hands over a comprehensive nuclear agreement? This week’s Pop Trends, Price Culture explains the otherwise inexplicable answer.
