For some time I have been a close follower of NYU economics professor, Nouriel Roubini.  He has been right more than most people in predicting the world’s finances.  This year he’ll be at Davos which will have two possible benefits:  better advice and better night life.

The New York University economist made his bones by predicting the mortgage meltdown and the ensuing recession. He will surely not want to softpedal his doom-mongering for airy talk of the future. But at home in Manhattan, he’s better known for the louche soirées he throws for young women in his vulva-studded TriBeCa loft. (Which, by the way, we applaud!) Roubini embodies the true spirit of Davos: wild partying in the face of the world’s doom.
