Nouriel Roubini, co-founder of Roubini Global Economics LLC, and Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group, talk about the European debt crisis, U.S. fiscal policy and political tensions in North Africa. Tom Keene is obnoxious in his perpetual push for “happy” news, and his habit of cutting off sober thoughts to divert to nonsense, but the content from Roubini and Bremmer is worthwhile. Listen to the remarkable sugar-high-like-speed with which they are forced to espouse complex thoughts in this ‘bits and bites style’ segment. SNL should do a comedy skit on the typical business television interview pace today. It’s truly ridiculous. Here is a direct link.
