Roubini providing education and resources to help individual investors understand how macroeconomics and geopolitics influences their lives and investments

“The mission of Roubini’s Edge is to analyze the global economy and connect the dots so individual investors can understand how economics, policymaking, and financial market activity come together to impact their lives, ” says Roubini.

World-renowned economist and author Nouriel Roubini this month launched his latest venture: a website called Roubini’s Edge ( dedicated to educating individual investors about how macroeconomics and geopolitics influence their lives and investments.

Roubini, a business professor at New York University and longtime advisor of governments and institutional investors, aims at the average investor with his free newsletter, Nouriel Unplugged, which engages the reader with an informal, conversational format.

Roubini refers to himself as a “global nomad,” observing and absorbing the cultures and businesses he sees as he travels the world.

“The world is becoming increasingly globalized and interconnected in new ways,” he notes. “My academic and professional work helps me to analyze the global economy and provide a sophisticated understanding of policy and politics and knowledge of the functioning of markets. The mission of Roubini’s Edge is to take all this, combined with my experiences from around the world, and connect the dots so individual investors can understand how academic economics, policymaking, and financial market activity come together to impact their lives.”

The idea for the website and free newsletter was triggered by the collapse of the US housing market and the subsequent global recession of 2008. Millions of investors were caught unawares, losing 50% or more of their net worth. Nouriel was one of the few economists who predicted the global recession, but many individual investors missed his message. It was for that reason that Roubini’s Edge and Nouriel Unplugged were created—to provide a higher level of financial literacy in the overall population.

Nouriel Unplugged is designed to engage anyone interested in investing, economics, or the markets, and to provide the news and information Nouriel believes is most important to the financial future of individual investors. Each week the chairman of Roubini Global Economics takes on the macroeconomic ideas he is most passionate about—topics that either present incredible opportunities or serious risks for investors.

Signing up to receive Nouriel Unplugged is free, and every new reader receives a complimentary copy of the in-depth special report: Five Serious Economic Dangers for 2015 and Beyond, by the Roubini’s Edge team. Because of a robust US stock market, many people are lulled into a false sense of security and miss the global risks that can affect their investments. The report spells out in detail the five greatest dangers the world and individual investors are facing right now.

“The simple truth is, there remain several serious risks to the global economic and financial system, and any one of them could impact global growth and stability,” Nouriel says. “When combined, they could trigger another global crisis.”

About Roubini’s Edge
Roubini’s Edge was created to provide individual investors the financial literacy sorely lacking around global economic issues and the financial markets in order to help them develop strategies that can protect them from global risk. In 2005, Nouriel Roubini warned about the impending housing bubble, with many disputing his claim. Not only did he foresee the housing crisis and the massive defaulting on mortgages and trillions of dollars of mortgage-backed securities unraveling worldwide which forced the global financial system to almost come to a halt, he also warned the IMF that the United States was likely to face a once-in-a-lifetime housing bust, an oil shock, sharply declining consumer confidence, and ultimately, a deep recession. Often proven right, Roubini continues to be a major voice in the international debate about the economy. For more information or to subscribe, go to:
