Our biggest financiers are China, Russia and the gulf states. These are rivals, not allies.
Roubini quotes
Janera:: Do you think then that itís good that the French are abolishing the headscarves or the yarmulke?
Roubini: Iím not in favor of restricting what people wear. Itís counterproductive and creates more separation. The effect of the French policy is that children will attend a religious school and wonít be exposed to the secular education that France offers. They wonít learn the value of western modern secular values.
Roubini

Roubini Nouriel quotes
