"Dr Doom" who predicted the credit crisis
Senior Advisor to the US Treasury, Clinton Administration
Named on Time magazine’s "Top 100 Most Influential People" (2009)
Dr. Nouriel Roubini is one of the most renowned economists of his generation. His critical and consistently bearish economic views have earned him the nickname of “Dr. Doom”.
In September 2006, Nouriel warned a sceptical IMF that the United States was likely to face a once-in-a-lifetime housing bust and a deep recession. His diagnosis of the subsequent financial crisis proved to be accurate, and as a result he is now a major figure in the fierce debate surrounding the future of the global economy and spends much of his time meeting with central bank governors and finance ministers in Europe and Asia.
He has worked at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Federal Reserve, World Bank, and Bank of Israel. Much of his early studies focused on emerging markets. During the administration of President Bill Clinton, he worked at the United States Treasury Department as a senior adviser to Timothy Geithner, who is now Treasury Secretary.
Nouriel Roubini is currently a Professor of Economics at the Stern School of Business, New York University. He is also the Chairman and CEO of Roubini Macro Associates, his own global macroeconomic consultancy firm. His views on global economic issues are widely cited by the media, and he is a frequent commentator on various business news programs and he has been the subject of extended profiles in the New York Times Magazine and other leading current-affairs publications. The Financial Times has also provided extensive coverage of Nouriel’s perspectives.
In 2009 Nouriel Roubini was included in Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2011-12 was #4 on Foreign Policy magazine’s list of the “top 100 global thinkers.” In 2013 he was awarded by Global Thinkers Forum the honorary GTF 2013 Award for Excellence in Global Thinking.
