Mad Money as Modern Art

Interesting e-mail from a friend of the show:

"Your show reminds me of Kandinsky's Composition 8. There are different shapes and colors, but somehow everything makes sense and brings about a sense of equilibrium."

I see what he's saying, but I've always felt like putting the show together everyday is a little bit more like making a Jackson Pollock painting. We like to work in as much modern art as possible – not that I’m recommending Sotheby’s – but this is the first time I've heard someone other than Jim analogize the show to a particular piece. Any other ideas from the art history crowd?




Cliff Mason is the Senior Writer of CNBC's Mad Money w/Jim Cramer, and has been that program's primary writer, in cooperation with and under the supervision of Jim Cramer, since he began at CNBC as an intern during the summer of 2005. Mason was the author of a column at TheStreet.com during 2007, which he describes as "hilarious, if short-lived." He graduated from Harvard College in 2007. It was at Harvard that Mason learned to multi-task, mastering the art of seeming to pay attention to professors while writing scripts for Mad Money. Mason has co-written two books with Jim Cramer: Jim Cramer's Mad Money: Watch TV, Get Rich and Stay Mad For Life: Get Rich, Stay Rich (Make Your Kids Even Richer). He is 100% responsible for any parts of either book that you did not like.

Mason has also had a fruitful relationship with Jim Cramer as his nephew for the last 23 years and will hopefully continue to hold that position for many more as long as he doesn't do anything to get himself kicked out of the family.
