Roubini is an Istanbulite!

(Or, should it be Istanbulian? Istanbuli?)

Just read in CN Portfolio that Nouriel Roubini was born in Istanbul and lived here until the age of five.

Not surprising in hindsight.  I think I can detect the levantine cynic in him.  The same is true for Nassem Taleb, who was born in Lebanon.
