Professor Nouriel Roubini

Fee Band

Roubini served on the American President’s Council of Economic Advisors before capturing headlines in 2006 by predicting recession. ‘Dr Doom’ warned that the deficit, housing bubble, rising oil prices and easy money created a toxic mix. In presentations Roubini assesses the prevailing risks and long-term trends - from austerity fatigue to the level of public debt, underemployment and income equality. He also considers the lack of global policy coordination, food and energy security, and the new revolution in manufacturing.


Nouriel Roubini is a Professor of Economics & International Business at New York University’s Stern School of Business.

Roubini was previously senior economist for International Affairs on the White House Council of Economic Advisors. He also advised the Director of Policy Development at the US Treasury Department, where he worked on the resolution of the Asian financial crisis of the late 90s and the reform of international financial architecture. He has also held positions at the Federal Reserve, World Bank and IMF.

Dubbed ‘Dr Doom’ by the New York Times for predicting the recession in 2006, Nouriel is now seen as one of the world’s leading economic and market commentators. Acknowledged for his foresight, he warned that the US current account deficit, the housing bubble, the rising oil price and "excessively easy money combined with a lack of supervision" created a toxic mix that could cause a violent recession. He continues to study the warning signs for future economic turmoil.

A regular writer and commentator on the global economy and the shortcomings of markets, Nouriel is the author of a number of acclaimed books including
Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance, The Invisible Hands: Top Hedge Fund Traders on Bubbles, Crashes, and Real Money, and SuperHubs: How the Financial Elite and Their Networks Rule our World.
