Nouriel Roubini, otherwise know as Dr. Doom, is a world traveler. If you follow him on Twitter one day he's in Rome and then the next day he's jetting off to Brazil. Everyone wants to hear him speak about the impending collapse of the world economy. But he's a lover too, and someone who can enjoy a good party now and again. He's also someone who likes to fish. His day job? He's an economic professor at NYU. He was the predictor of the housing collapse. It's his face that's constantly streamed across CNBC and Bloomberg and now

The Germans want the rest of the European Union to submit to their austerity plans, become virgins again for two years. Roubini says it's impossible. The quote comes at around the 20 minute mark at the end of the video below:
"The Germans say, “you lost your virginity. Now you sign a contract; you say, ‘I’m a boring virgin.’ Be abstinent for the next two years. Show me your soul and two years from now, we’re going to get married. But today, I commit to marriage today? Forget it.” (DealBreaker)
By the way, notice Roubini's lack of a tie and

Nouriel Roubini, otherwise known as Dr. Doom, talks about the outlook for the stock market in 2012. Surprisingly, Mr. Roubini is not as gloom and doomy as he usually is. Perhaps he woke up on the right side of the bed. He talks more about dirty laundry than anything else. And yes, he still see volatility in the markets:
“Last year was a year of risk, volatility, uncertainty and surprises and the question is, ‘Are they going to happen again?’” Roubini said. “If you think about all these tail risks about the global economy, the reality is many of them

Nonsense: Greece Wants to Buy Nouriel Roubini’s Firm, Offers Crete in Exchange

Comments Off
Why in the hell would Greece do that? Easy, they're tired of Roubini saying their country is falling apart and they won't be able to pay their debts. Other countries like Spain, Portugal and Ireland might chip in as well, to buy his firm. They too of course are tired of his glass half empty type projections and predictions. Moreover, the straw that broke the camel's back for Greece was when Roubini called their recent bailing out of creditors a giant Ponzi scheme. He also said they should leave the European Union and the Euro, an idea

"The question is not whether or if there is going to be a double dip, but whether it's going to be mild or severe with another financial crisis," Roubini, head of Roubini Global Economics, told CNBC on the sidelines of the World Knowledge Forum in Seoul. "The answer on that depends on the euro

Does Nouriel Roubini Hope There’s a Double Dip or a Recession?

I'm starting to get the feeling Nouriel Roubini hopes there's a double dip or a recession in the United States. Actually, it's becoming clear that that's what Roubini is praying for before he drifts off to sleep thinking of more gloomy things to say, as little sheep with horns and red eyes jump through his head. If you following Roubinhi on Twitter you're stream is constantly filled with his tweets about how there's a 50% chance for a double dip. Then a few minutes later it's a 80% chance. Then it's a tweet about a double dip and a long

Getty Images If there was a measure of how often Dr. Doom, otherwise known as Nouriel Roubini, was on TV doing interviews or press, you could predict when we've reached a bottom in the stock market. Heck, if you were just to monitor Roubini's own Twitter account, and see the surge in his own tweets, him relishing the doom and gloom, you'd probably come damn close to picking the bottom in the stock market. These days, what with Europe in a chaotic state and the U.S. perhaps in a long drawn out jobless recession, Mr. Roubinhi is front and center on

Well, I was right and have been right since 2007. I predicted the housing collapse and now again have predicted the stock market fall. Have you noticed how everyone wants to hear from me now? I'm constantly being asked questions on Twitter, requests for TV interviews have skyrocketed, and I have more parties to attend than Prince in 1999. This is my TIME! Hear me roar! Listen to me. I am god. I'm bigger than George Soros. I am Dr. DOOOOOOOOOOOOM. I don't care what everyone else is saying, it's me you must listen to. Not Bernanke. Not Timmy Geithner. How

Nouriel Roubini Makes Very Poor Analogy

Aug 10, 2011
J. Webster
Comments Off
Dr. Doom, Nouriel Roubini, goes way to far with an analogy, as he compares 'helicopter' Ben Bernanke's attempts to save the economy with the helicopter attack in Afghanistan. And we get it that he doesn't like the economy already. He'd better stick with comparing the U.S. economy to a deep ugly swamp and not make comparisons to U.S. Navy Seals dying in a terrible helicopter crash. Come on man. Here's the Roubini tweet and then Josh Brown rightly questioning his motives and use of the comparison. @Nouriel Nouriel Roubini Ben can send the helicopters but the risk-off & fear &
