The Place to See and Be Seen on the Internet
I am on page 104 of Paul Blustein's very good And the Money Came Rolling in (and Out): Wall Street, the IMF, and the Bankrupting of Argentina (New York: Public Affairs: 1586482459). I learn on that page that Nouriel Roubini's is the place to be:
Born in Turkey to Iranian Jewish parents, raised in Italy, and educated at Bocconi University and Milan and at Harvard, Nouriel Roubini was something of a celebrity in the community of international financial-crisis experts.... [He] had created a website... where he posted important documents, news articles, and academic papers--and for people interested in the subject, the site became a cyberspace version of the place to see and be seen.
I guess I should put on a tie and mosey on over...
I'm told that Blustein's book has three heroes: Nouriel Roubini, Brad Setser, and Charlie Calomiris, all of whom played the role of Cassandra in the Argentine crisis. But I don't know when I'll have time to finish the book...
