Roubini of NYU Sees ‘Long and Protracted’ U.S. Recession: Video
June 12, 2008
Roubini is more optimistic than usually … can be a contrary indicator.
Am I imagining things or does Nouriel look much more sleek and polished than he used to do. Much less dishevelled. Success is pleasant.
It must be a long and protracted recession because according to Roubini it started in the 4th Qtr of 2006.
Nah! Roubini is an optimist.
This is gonna get really ugly…
I would like to see Roubini try his luck at the amateur commedy night at the local commedy club.
