I always knew that Nouriel Roubini was quite volatile. I just never thought to chart it.

This is because, Felix, when Times Get Volatile, People Dial “Roubini”.

“Hmm. That economy over there is looking pretty fragile, Abner!”

“Yeah, sure is, honey. D’you think ..?”
“Yeah, sweetheart I think you better get on that phone and call Professor Roubini”

Like that.
