After the United States was downgraded by the S&P, Nouriel Roubini joked about how he had to go into Canada if he wanted to catch a triple A rated fish. Where he was at, in Maine, you can only catch AA 11-inch fish. Yeah, he had me falling off my chair with that one.
Ever the comedian, Dr. Doom has called the United States economy a deep ugly swamp and talked about a perfect storm coming in 2013. I’m now wondering if that perfect storm he was predicting hasn’t come a bit early, what with the S&P downgrade, the problems in Europe, and now the slow down of the U.S. economy.
Roubini tweeted this picture below.
In what almost looks like a Saturday Nigh Live setup, rousing Roubini on his fishing trip, Bloomberg gets his reaction to the U.S. downgrade along with a few other economists or Roubini’s fishing buddies.
