Nouriel Roubini, a professor of economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business, has now written a myth-shattering book about the methods he used to foretell the crisis before other economists saw it coming, entitled Crisis Eco-nomics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance. Nouriel Roubini served in the White House and the United States Treasury Department. He is the founder and chairman of RGE Monitor, an economic and financial consulting firm, and is an advisor of central bankers around the world.
He was named one of the Top 100 Public Intellectuals in the world in 2008 by Foreign Policy magazine, and Fortune magazine has singled him out as one of the market experts who predicted this severe financial crisis.
