While the financial quasi-meltdown caught most people by surprise, it was not news for Nouriel Roubini. He is one of the few analysts to have foreseen the problem. He will be addressing Mipim on Thursday, March 10 2011 to assess the global economics outlook and its impact on real estate.
Roubini is the co-founder and chairman of Roubini Global Economics, an economic and geo-strategic information service and consultancy hailed by Business Week, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal and The Economist. He is also a professor of economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business.
Dr. Roubini has extensive policy experience as well as broad academic credentials. From 1998-2000, he served as the Senior Economist for International Affairs at the White House Council of Economic Advisors and then the Senior Advisor to the Under Secretary for International Affairs at the U.S. Treasury Department, helping to resolve the Asian and global financial crises among other issues. The International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and numerous other prominent public and private institutions have drawn upon his consulting expertise.
Roubini has published over 70 theoretical empirical and policy papers on international macroeconomic issues and co-authored the books “Political Cycles: Theory and Evidence” (M.I.T. Press, 1997) and “Bailouts or Bail-ins, Responding to Financial Crises in Emerging Markets” (Institute for International Economics, 2004), and Crisis Economics – A Crash Course in the Future of Finance (Penguin Press, 2010). Dr. Roubini’s views on global economics issues are widely cited by the media, and he is a frequent commentator on various business news programs. The Financial Times has also provided extensive coverage of Dr. Roubini’s viewpoints.
Dr. Roubini received an undergraduate degree at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy and a Ph.D. in economics at Harvard University. Prior to joining Stern, he was on the faculty of Yale University’s department of economics.
Interest in his talk will be high, reflected in the fact that he will be addressing the main hall in the Palais des Festivals.
