Nouriel Roubini: Real Estate Is "For Sure" Double Dipping, And Another $1 Trillion In Losses Is Coming

They don’t call him Dr. Doom for nothing.

Nouriel Roubini is out with a call for another $1 TRILLION ins housing-related losses. He tells Dealbook that real estate is “for sure” double dipping now (a call that seems clearly supported by the latest Case-Shiller data, among others).

Roubini is particularly drawn to this report (.pdf) from Amherst Securities that suggest another 11 million homeowners remain underwater, which is well above the 3-4 million mark he had previously assumed.

So how does Roubini arrive at the $1 trillion number? Figure 11 million homes, a $200,000 mortgage on each, and a 50% recovery. Voila.
