I have seen too many in the investment world and on other stages make one outstanding call only to express a continuing dogma (and an absence of rigor) in the face of changing conditions.

I have characterized the March bottom as not only a generational one but as "The Nouriel Roubini Market Bottom." This was not meant as an ad hominem attack on Dr. Doom, just an exclamation point to my call for a market turn.

Perhaps Dr. Doom's expression of optimism will mark The Nouriel Roubini Top!
