As the Federal Reserve’s Open Market Committee begins a two-day meeting, economist Nouriel Roubini and political scientist Ian Bremmer warned that the Fed’s monetary easing exit strategy would be “treacherous” and would lead to financial instability.
“We know how the movie ended, and we may be poised for a sequel. The weak real economy and job market, together with high debt ratios, suggest the need to exit monetary stimulus slowly. But a slow exit risks creating a credit and asset bubble as large as the previous one, if not larger,” they wrote in a report published in Institutional Investor magazine.
Roubini, better known as “Dr. Doom” for his pessimistic economic forecasts, and Bremmer, president of global political risk research and consulting Eurasia Group warned that the real underlying risks to the global economy were being ignored.
