Roubini starts the interview by admitting that there are these good things going on in the America economy:

- Improved job market

- Improving housing market

- The benefits of the shale oil and gas revolution

That is quite a bit of optimism from "Dr. Doom!" However, he quickly turns negative listing the challenges also facing the American economy:

- Increased payroll taxes slowing consumption

- The sequester which will put a 1.5% drag on the economy

He obviously thinks the sequester is going to be a big drag and sees 1.5% as the rate of growth for the immediate future.
