NYU Global Research Prof. Ian Bremmer and Prof. Nouriel Roubini speak at a Time Inc. panel
— January 17, 2014
Excerpt from TIME -- "Roubini believes that the U.S. is going to grow about 2.5 percent this year, which is up from predictions of the last few years, but below the consensus. As incoming Fed chair Janet Yellen told me last week, she and the other Fed governors are 'hopeful that the first digit [of GDP growth] this year will be 3 rather than 2.' But neither Bremmer nor Roubini was hopeful that it would be enough to close the inequality gap in the US, one of the key goals for President Obama in the remainder of his term."
