Ten Highlights From the Nouriel Roubini Twitter Rampage

The Nouriel Roubini Twitter rampage of the past 24 hours makes Charlie Munger’s infamous “harvested baby brains” quote sound genteel. As his NYU colleagues are no doubt busying themselves trying to wrest Roubini’s laptop from him before he endangers his reputation as a thoughtful academic, we thought it would be interesting to list some of the highlights.

10 – Hell Hath No Fury Like an Economist Scorned

Hot on the heels of his testimony to the U.S. Senate’s top banking committee, esteemed economist Nouriel Roubini took to Twitter to let off some steam. He took aim at every conceivable crypto angle in a fiery rage on the social media platform, often ignoring the calmer dissenters to his positions, and seemingly ignoring the need to sleep. Let’s take a look at some of his more inglorious outbursts.

Roubini’s long-term argument against tokens in particular is that they return society to the barter era. He reminds us of his thoughts on that here:

9 – On North Korea, Oligarchs, and ‘Big Fat Lies’

The economist is certainly not lost for insults in this gem targeting his pro-crypto adversaries:

6 – The Nouriel Roubini Twitter Rampage Leaves No Coinbase Unturned

It is unclear why Roubini chose to take a pot shot at Coinbase in this tweet. Twitter’s tolerance of free speech without proof appears to be an ally here:

5 – A Cesspool of Stinking Shitcoins

Not everybody likes an altcoin. But an NYU professor generally uses slightly more elegance in their language:

4 – On Rampant Market Manipulation

Is Roubini talking about Wall Street here or cryptocurrencies?

3 – Muammar Gaddafi and The Grand Despot Plan

Apparently, there is a grand crypto plan to prop up dictators like the late Muammar Gaddafi and Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro. If so, crypto was a bit late to the party in Libya, and if only Roubini understood that most of the crypto community is as skeptical of the Petro as he is:

2 – Salty Mudslides–Is That a Drink or an Insult?

The Dead Sea, or a bowl of peanuts at a bar, would be proud:

1 – When Lambo?

For pure comedy value, this tweet speaks for itself:
