Abstract: This thesis investigates the use of presidential rhetoric by President George W. Bush during the 2003 Conflict in Iraq as an attempt to incite short-term investment in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The thesis begins by discussing numerous political science studies testing the correlation between presidential rhetoric and public thought. Following, a time series regression model is used to examine the correlation between the Dow Jones Industrial sales volume and index value and presidential rhetoric (coded as insecurity and security) for a ten-month time period (September 2002 to June 2003). The results of the Case Study were statistically insignificant. The remainder of the thesis, then, carefully reviews the methodology used in the Case Study, while also using the fields of behavioral economics, cognitive psychology and persuasion literature to obtain a better sense of the different variables that are connected to a political attempt to persuade economic action.
