Nouriel Roubini is a professor of economics at NYU’s Stern School of Business. He is also known as “Dr. Doom.” He has extensive policy experience as well as broad academic credentials. Professor Roubini has published over 70 theoretical, empirical and policy papers on international macroeconomic issues. His views on global economic issues are widely cited by the media, and he is a frequent commentator on various business news programs.
At a 2006 address to the International Monetary Fund, Roubini warned of the impending recession due to the credit and housing market bubble. His predictions of these upside-down balance sheets became a reality in 2008, with the bubble bursting and reverberating around the world into a global financial crisis – a recession we’re only recently rebounding from after a decade climb.
