Nouriel Roubini is a professor of Economics at the Stern School of Business at New York University and an economic consultant who has been nicknamed "Dr. Doom" because of his dire economic predictions. He is also the co-founder and chairman of the firm Roubini Global Economics. He is widely credited with predicting the popping of the U.S. housing bubble and resultant economic collapse that began in 2007.
Roubini has predicted that U.S. financial losses will more than triple to $3.6 trillion and has advocated nationalizing U.S. banks, saying that most of them are insolvent. He has also called for an overhaul of the international bank regulatory framework.
