Roubini : America Risks Contagion from Europe

Nouriel Roubini : CERTAINLY THERE IS A RISK OF CONTAGION. THE TRADE LINK BETWEEN EUROPE AND U.S. ARE MODEST BUT THE FINANCIAL LINKS ARE IMPORTANT. IN THE SPRING OF 2010 WHEN THERE WAS THE FIRST GREEK CRISIS, YOU HAD THE CORRECTION OF 20% NOT ONLY OF EUROPEAN EQUITY BUT THE U.S. EQUITY. LAST SUMMER WHEN WE HAD THEWORRIES ABOUT THE EUROZONE PROBLEM SPREADING TO SPAIN AND ITALY, IT WAS A 20% CORE ACTION IN EUROPE. ALMOST AS MUCH AS CORE ACTION IN EMERGING MARKET IN THE UNITED STATES. WHEN TROUBLE OCCURS IN THE EUROZONE THE RISK OF SOMETHING DISORDERLY IMPLIES THE RISK IS OFF, RISK AVERSION IS HIGH AND THAT AFFECTS GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS NOT JUST THOSE IN THE EUROZONE. - in CNBC
