A 'perfect storm' of recession, debt, and out-of-control inflation is coming for markets this year, 'Dr. Doom' Nouriel Roubini says

A recession, a debt crisis, and stagflation will hit the US economy this year, Nouriel Roubini said. Roubini, one of the first economists to call the 2008 recession, has been warning for months of a stagflationary debt crisis, which would combine the worst aspects of '70s-style stagflation and the '08 debt crisis. The result would be a steep recession, anyway, followed by more debt and inflation problems. "Now we're facing the perfect storm: inflation, stagflation, recession, and a potential debt crisis," Roubini said. He urged investors to protect themselves by choosing inflation hedges, such as gold, inflation-indexed bonds, and short-term bonds.
