By Jana Randow and Rishaad Salamat March 26 (Bloomberg) — Nouriel Roubini , the New York University professor who predicted the financial crisis, said a rescue plan for Greece by the International Monetary Fund would have been “cleaner” than the deal endorsed yesterday by leaders of the 16-nation euro region. “It’s a compromise between the German views where they wanted to have a greater role of the IMF in the support of Greece and the views of the rest of the euro zone, especially France, where they wanted a European solution,” Roubini said in a Bloomberg TV interview today. “An IMF solution would have been a cleaner one because the IMF has the experience” in providing financial aid to struggling countries

From crude to copper, from gold to silver, most commodities have been on a tear lately—but is the rise too much, too fast?

HAI Associate Editor Lara Crigger caught up with Dr. Roubini at the "Inside Commodities" conference on Nov. 4, where he shared his thoughts on global commodities markets, including why we can't look to China to drive global growth, how $100 oil would tip us back into recession, and what will happen when the commodities bubble finally pops.

March 26 (Bloomberg) -- Nouriel Roubini, the New York University economist who predicted the financial crisis, said U.S. lawmakers may spark a trade war by labeling China as a “currency manipulator.”
“With unemployment at 10 percent and more than 130 Congress people saying we should brand China as a manipulator, the probability the U.S. is going to do that in its mid-April report is significant, I would say at least 50 percent,” Roubini told Bloomberg Television today in Cernobbio, Italy. “That could lead to a trade war, absolutely.”
