Striving to further the profession with diverse opportunities in continuing education, advocacy, ethics awareness, and networking.
Robert has written 20 books on finance, beginning with Elliott Wave Principle in 1978, which predicted a 1920s-style stock market boom. His 2002 title, Conquer the Crash, predicted the 2006-2011 stocks and property crises. In The Socionomic Theory of Finance (2006), Prechter detailed a paradigm for financial markets that differs in every substantive way from the paradigm borrowed from economics. In July 2007, The Journal of Behavioral Finance published “The Financial/Economic Dichotomy: A Socionomic Perspective,” by Prechter and his colleague, Dr. Wayne Parker. In 2012, Sage Open published Prechter et. al’s “Social Mood, Stock Market Performance, and U.S. Presidential Elections: A Socionomic Perspective on Voting Results,” which became the third-most-downloaded paper on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) website in 2012.
Prechter has made presentations on socionomic theory to Oxford, Cambridge, the London School of Economics, MIT, Georgia Tech, SUNY and academic conferences.
His most recently completed project is an investigation into the true authors behind pseudonyms used in Elizabethan-era England, posted at www.oxfordsvoices.com.
Robert attended Yale University on a full scholarship and received a B.A. in psychology.
