A Macro Outlook with Dr. Nouriel Roubini



   Thursday September 10th  |  A Macro Outlook with Dr. Nouriel Roubini

Please join the Connecticut Hedge Fund Association for our third quarter symposium featuring celebrated economist Dr. Nouriel Roubini. From the crisis in Greece to the rise of an equity culture in China, Nouriel Roubini and his team at Roubini Global Economics provide regular assessments of the macro landscape, with in-depth coverage of over 50 countries, regions, and asset classes.

Roubini's predictions have earned him the nicknames "Dr. Doom" and "permabear" in the media, but as Nobel laureate Paul Krugman stated, his once "seemingly outlandish" predictions (including the housing/MBS bubble and resulting Great Recession) have been matched "or even exceeded by reality.

Join over 200 of your fellow hedge fund colleagues on September 10th in Greenwich, CT to hear what Dr. Roubini and his team are thinking about in 2015.
