Professor of Economics, NYU's Stern School of Business and Chairman, Roubini Global Economics.Website:
Popularly known as Dr. Doom (the title of a profile in The New York Times Magazine), Dr. Nouriel Roubini is known for his now-vindicated predictions of the current financial crisis. He speaks on the global economic outlook and its implications for financial markets.
Ignored for a long time by mainstream economists and policy makers, he now receives invitations to speak before such influential organizations as the U.S. Congress and the Council on Foreign Relations. He has been forecasting a serious financial crisis in the U.S. for years, speaking notably before a sceptical IMF about his predictions in 2006.
He has now co-authored a myth-shattering book, Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance, with Stephen Mihm. It reveals the methods Nouriel used to foretell the current crisis before other economists saw it coming.
Dr. Roubini was chosen as number 4 on Foreign Policy's Top 100 Global Thinkers list and was named to Fortune Magazine's list of “10 new gurus you should know”.
Systematic research informs Nouriel's opinions. From his analysis of past collapses of emerging economies, he has identified common factors that support his predictions of crisis in the U.S. and world markets.
Nouriel Roubini is a Professor of Economics at New York University's Stern School of Business and is Chairman and founder of Roubini Global Economics, an innovative economic and geo-strategic information service with 30 economists on staff. He studies international macroeconomics, political economy and the mechanisms of economic growth.
Professor Roubini served as a senior adviser to the White House Council of Economic Advisers and the U.S. Treasury Department, has published numerous policy papers and books on key international macroeconomic issues, and is regularly cited as an authority in the media.
