Dr. Doom at the helm of the World Bank? Blackhawk's Ziad Abdelnour makes the case to select Nouriel Roubini for the top job based on his "strong sense of reality" as witnessed by his call on the collapse of the U.S. housing market. Roubini has accumulated the requisite clout by hobnobbing with politicians across U.S., Asia, and Europe - while maintaining a needed sense of independence and realism. Other choices: Hillary Clinton, Larry Summers (previous), and surely an ex-Goldman alum or two (?).
