Inferno o Paradiso?

NYU Professor Nouriel Roubini’s econ meta-site, RGE Monitor, has grown impressively. Along with Head of Global Research Brad Setser, the two have amassed an enormously comprehensive source list for all things Macro-Economic, and in a relatively short period of time. (I have been privileged to contribute to the site). 

The Professor lives and teaches in NYC, but he definitely maintains an Italiano sensibility. To wit: a compilation of articles discussing both the up and downside risks for 2006, most suitably labelled Inferno and Paradiso.

It has something for Bull or Bear alike:

    I keep wondering what positive events could occur that are not already in the consensus forecast. I can see only very low probability ones like falling oil prices or really good employment figures, so I put downside risks as greater than upside ones currently. A roller coaster year overall.
