Nouriel Roubini is one of the world’s foremost experts on the financial system, and like me, was warning of potential crises while most other commentators could only see roses blooming. He is Professor of Economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business, and founded the RGE Monitor, a highly successful commercial intelligence website. He has recently established a new blog with a focus on Asia, and has kindly asked me to be one of the contributors.
Normally I will simply cross-post my Debtwatch blog, but on occasions I’ll write special purpose entries there. Nouriel has also assembled an interesting team of non-orthodox commentators from the academic and business sectors.
