This is a case of 'sour grapes'. That is, since he didn't plant the grapes and he can't have any of the grapes, they simply must be sour.

His lack of vision firmly implants him in the past. Nouriel, welcome to the has-beens-club. You ranted and raved and pounded on the table and absolutely NONE of your proposed reforms has been given anything more than a nod.

Bitcoin comes along and realizes that if the old rules are as corrupt as Nouriel Roubini says they are, why even bother playing by the old rules at all?

This is a new game Nouriel and you get to warm the bench.

I wonder if he genuinely believes his story or he's been paid to say it. Guess we'll never find out.

LOL, Keynesianism is nothing else than the religion of a government sanctioned Ponzi scheme.

It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.

We could/should use that quote frequently to reply to lame, uninformed BTC articles.

"Keynesianism is the cult of a government sanctioned Ponzi scheme."

Sour grapes seems to be the favourite dish of the cult when Bitcoin was passed over.

I really wish one of these economists would point out investments that have a better store of value. He says bitcoin has a "lousy" store of value, but what about the dollar? Sure, on a short time frame of weeks or months, the dollar holds it's value relatively well. But on the scale of years, dollars are guaranteed to lose value. Plus, there's a risk that the Fed could screw up and tank the dollar even more rapidly. I don't know why anyone would keep fiat cash in their bank account greater than what they need for the next six months, or a year tops. So I'd gladly take a higher risk investment that has potentially huge gains instead of one that is guaranteed to lose slowly.
