Financial Crises And Crisis Economics: Past, Present And Future

Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Professor Nouriel Roubini
Chair: Professor Alan Manning

Recorded on 18 May 2010 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

As early as 2005 Roubini speculated that house prices would soon sink the economy, and in 2006 warned the IMF that the United States was likely to face a catastrophic housing bust resulting in deep recession. Back then he was nicknamed 'Dr Doom' by the New York Times. In hindsight, economists have called him a prophet.
