Nouriel Roubini in Bulgaria. Growth opportunities for a small economy in the global world
26 February, 2013. The big questions have their answers
Nouriel Roubini is a world-class economist who predicted the current financial crisis.

Mr. Roubini is a Professor of Economics at NYU’s Stern School of Business, and founder and chairman at the economic and financial analysis firm Roubini Global Economics, with 30 economists on staff.Held several high-level advisory positions in the U.S. government and international finance organizations.

Popularly known as Dr. Doom (the title of a profile in The New York Times Magazine), Dr. Nouriel Roubini has published numerous policy papers and books on key international macroeconomic issues, and is regularly cited as an authority in the media.

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 skeptical IMF about his predictions in 2006.

He has now coauthored 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.
