The Award-Winning Nouriel Roubini Global Macro Site Announces the Re-launch of RGE Monitor (

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 20, 2005 -- Roubini Global Economics, LLC (RGE), creator of the award-winning Nouriel Roubini Global Macro site, today announced the re-launch of its website -- RGE Monitor ( -- into an unparalleled commercial economic information service. RGE Monitor is the leading aggregator of ahead-of-the-curve information on global economic and geostrategic issues. The updated service now provides expanded coverage of over 130 different topics and countries, offering an indispensable global perspective on economic issues, policies, and debates. By aggregating editorially selected information RGE Monitor is committed to delivering the most important news, research, op-ed, blogs and analysis -- the broadest coverage on economics and geostrategic information from the widest variety of online sources.

"Unlike other aggregators, our service delivers unbiased editorial perspective with state-of-the-art presentation on global economic information to the workflow process of business strategists, investors, researchers, academics, policy makers and regulators," says Chairman of RGE, Nouriel Roubini.

"Through the success of RGE Monitor we are definitely seeing an end to the perception that general purpose search engines are delivering the most efficient path to relevant information in general and in specialized areas of economics and geopolitics. Investors, researchers, policy makers and business strategists clearly appreciate seeing the most intelligent thinking on any topic with the added assurance that they are not missing out on important debates and policy issues," said Camille LeBlanc, President, CEO of RGE. She added, "While specialized search has gained traction in the online world, there is still a gaping hole in the market for delivering highly relevant information. Search technology alone cannot deliver this quality of content; it also requires sophisticated editorial selection."
