Roubini's Econ Blog

Nouriel Roubini's Global Macroeconomic and Financial Policy Site is big, broad, and pretty amazing. If you can stomach a 50 page .pdf, make sure to read the dollar-bear article: Will The Bretton Woods 2 Regime Unravel Soon? The Risk of a Hard Landing in 2005-2006.

Incredible find. So much reading that it'll last months for me. Thanks.

The YoFEGO (Your Fucking Eyes Glaze Over) Factor is high on this site. But worth the time if you got it.

This is... man... staggaring. Did any of you go here. The Iraq and Geopolitics section. Great stuff.

Let me just, in summary, reiterate the facts for you:

Bush has royally fucked us.

Another great find.

For a translation of what this means to you, see this previous MeFi discussion.

And in related news, see this morning's top business story: Dollar Drops as South Korea States Intention to Diversify Currency Reserves.

The Iraq and Geopolitics section

Wait, I'm supposed to trust a guy who can't design a website worth shit for macro economics, US electoral politics, and geo politics?

And his qualification? He's at Business School (aka "Powerpoint School")! Of course I believe everything he says...

It should be the arguments advanced, not the source, that cause you to believe or disbelieve the assertions. Do you not find any sources of worry in the current economic situation, that is, the US government/private sector undersaving, the dollar falling, and the growing economic power of Asia, especially China?

I've been following that site since I first heard about it (here) some months ago. Still don't know whether the great economic collapse will happen tomorrow or six years from now (I'm not totally convinced by that latest paper), but at least I'll know where to go to read about it when it does. Roubini and Setzer are both good writers, and seem honest and well-informed. Well, for economists, anyway.
