Nouriel Roubini is one of the most influential economic thinkers of his generation. He is CEO of Roubini Macro Associates, LLC, a global macroeconomic consultancy firm in New York. He is also Chief Economist for Atlas Capital Team LP, as well as Co-Founder of Rosa & Roubini Associates.

Having famously predicted in 2005-2006 that a US housing bust would threaten to sink the global economy, Nouriel Roubini was nicknamed “Dr. Doom”. But he was soon proved correct by the ensuing financial crisis. 

As well as his academic credentials, Nouriel has extensive policy-making experience. From 1998-2000, he served as the Senior Economist for International Affairs on the White House Council of Economic Advisors and then Senior Advisor to the Undersecretary for International Affairs at the U.S. Treasury Department, helping to resolve the Asian and global financial crises, among other issues. He has also advised the IMF and World Bank, as well other public bodies

From 2005-2016, Nouriel was Co-founder and Chairman of Roubini Global Economics. The firm’s website was named one of the best economics web resources by BusinessWeek, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal and the Economist.

Nouriel is also a prolific public intellectual and commentator on macroeconomic themes. His best-selling books include Bailouts or Bail-ins? Responding to Financial Crises in Emerging Markets, and Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance.

Nouriel Roubini’s latest book, Megathreats: Ten Dangerous Trends That Imperil Our Future, And How to Survive Them (2022), became a #1 bestseller in macroeconomics on Amazon. He warns there is a slight chance we can avoid these megathreats — but we must act now.
