Economics speaker Nouriel Roubini is one of the world’s leading authorities on macroeconomics and global finance. An entertaining and authoritative keynote speaker, Nouriel Roubini delivers insights earned over the course of an unmatched career.
Nouriel Roubini is one of the world’s most distinguished, renowned, and prescient economists. He is professor of economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business and also a respected consultant. Roubini Macro Associates operates out of New York, and Rosa & Roubini Associates, which he co-founded, is based in London. The IMF, the World Bank, and other major global financial institutions seek Roubini’s counsel.
Roubini’s 2006 address to the IMF warned about bubbles in the credit and housing markets. Too few heeded his wisdom, and global financial markets were mired in crisis just two years later.
From 1998 to 2000, Roubini played a major role in shaping US policy toward international financial markets. Firstly, he began his public policy career as the senior economist for world affairs on the White House Council of Economic Advisors. Roubini was then named the senior advisor to the undersecretary for international affairs at the Treasury Department.
Along with frequent contributions to leading periodicals, Roubini has written several highly influential books. Crisis Economics is a masterful account of the global financial crisis of 2008. Bailouts or Bail-Ins?, which Roubini co-authored, examines the ways governments and NGOs respond to financial crises.
Prior to joining the faculty at Stern, Roubini taught at Yale University, as a member of its economics faculty. He earned his undergraduate degree from Milan’s Bocconi University and his doctorate in economics from Harvard.
The outlook for the global economy and financial markets is mixed. The positives and upside include a pick-up in global growth after years of a new mediocre, profitable corporate firms, better business and consumer confidence, more optimistic investors with markets in risk-on mode, the rise of emerging markets, new technologies and innovation. The downside are however several: uncertainties about Trumponomics, the risks of European and Eurozone dis-integration, the potential for a hard landing of highly indebted China, the sluggish global growth and productivity in a world of high private and public debts, the frothiness in financial markets and the risks of assets and credit bubbles fed by easy monetary policies, the backlash against globalization and geopolitical risks. Markets are now bullish is not bubbly but the economies are still sluggish. Roubini argues that a new policy framework is needed to minimize the downsides and maximize the upsides.
Uncertainties remain about the economic policies of Trump and their impact on the US economy and markets. Since the presidential election investors have become bullish pushing financial markets to new highs while business and consumer confidence have risen in spite of still sluggish growth. Investors hope that fiscal stimulus, infrastructure spending, tax reform and deregulation will boost growth and markets. A honeymoon can continue for quite a while if positive policies are properly implemented. But markets may be overestimating Trump’s ability to deliver positive policy changes and the impact of such changes on a potential growth that is kept low by longer term and structural forces. Markets may also be underestimating some of the potential negatives of Trumponomics: protectionism and the risk of trade wars; restrictions to migration that may slow growth in an ageing society; inefficient micro-management of the decisions of the corporate sector on where to produce, invest and hire; a sub-optimal policy mix with loose fiscal policy in an economy close to full employment that will force the Fed to tighten sooner and more; that could lead to higher interest rates and a stronger dollar that will hurt jobs and growth. Roubini argues that the jury is still out on whether Trumponomics will be more populist and protectionist or more mainstream and pragmatic, even if the latter scenario looks more likely.
In this session, famed economist Dr. Nouriel Roubini will discuss the outlook for markets and the global economy in the next 5 years — including his insights on the major risks and opportunities that we will face. Roubini explores multiple topics ranging from global growth, US equities & fixed income, The Fed and global central banks, the trade relations with China, politics, and the impact of disruptive technologies like AI and robotics.
