Gasparino vs Roubini
October 11, 2010

Charlie Gasparino takes a swing at Nouriel Roubini today; I’m not sure why, beyond general unhappiness at the fact that Nouriel still gets a lot of respect both inside and outside Washington. Gasparino apparently conducted an “informal survey”, in which, he says, he couldn’t find a single investor who regularly uses Roubini’s research.
