Hail Nouriel!

Nouriel Roubini False Prophet.jpg

The photo of the day comes from Wall St Cheat Sheet, which has put together this wonderful picture to illustrate a piece entitled “Is Nouriel Roubini a False Prophet?”.

From left, we can see Tim Geithner, in the background, followed by the garlanded Nouriel himself, followed by Brad Setser (sadly no longer blogging), who looks over the shoulder of CNBC’s Joe Kernen. Over to the right, in black and white, is Stephen Mihm, who wrote a long profile of Roubini for the NYT magazine. Larry Summers is conspicuous by his absence; maybe he’s in the sky above, pulling all the strings.

The Hoffman Brothers at Wall St. Cheat Sheet are delivering quality interviews, articles and education. Glad you picked them up, Felix. They deserve it!

Nouriel had quite a run of publicity for a while…wonder who his publicists were, because I think his well has run dry…I’ve read about his lavish parties in Manhattan…He’s juicing his pseudo-celebrity.
