Intellectual Bedfellows: David Petraeus and Nouriel Roubini

Check Prospect’s choices for top public intellectuals of 2008: Nouriel Roubini and General David Petraeus. They make for fascinatingly strange bedfellows.


Roubini is, of course, speaking at the Money:Tech 2009 conference in New York. Maybe we need Petraeus too.


  1. I would have to agree with you Miss Tout. All I know is my pennies are now going under my mattress. I actually just read a funny post by Mitchell Ashley where he aligned Biden with Walter (character from Jeff Dunham act) if you havent seen his act – you will have a new light you take our political candidate in.

    @seth – you mentioned the war and the money "sloshing around" (great way of putting it) what are predicting our market will do when we have the influx of troops back here..esp to the housing market – b/c they are overseas many of the foreclosures have not taken place yet.
