A. As I have pointed out many times, Nouriel Roubini is the most connected economist in the world. On New Year's eve, he was photographed partying at Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich's party, where he could have possibly met alleged Russian spy Anna Chapman.
B. He is a consultant to most of the central banks in the world. He is as tied in as they get, a great target for spies. And Roubini would easily fall for the charms of alleged Russian spy Anna Chapman (pictured above).

From the mail bag:
Saw Roubini and Anna Chapman at a party in Chelsea together a couple weeks ago. Warm, familiar conversation between the two; allusions to dates, frequently being together, etc. The Professor limiting himself to one woman a night is the real news, IMO. The one he picks to spend two dates with happens to be a Russian spy?
