“Taking the ‘Mad Money Back to School Tour’ to New Orleans has always been a goal of mine. This city, much like the economy, is resilient and its people are fighters,” said Jim Cramer. “New Orleans has taught the world what being an American is all about and what it takes to make it even in the face of the worst kinds of adversity. These qualities are crucial to success for the next generation of leaders.”

“With the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina fresh in our minds and as we approach the 6-month anniversary of the BP oil spill, there has never been a better time to shine a light on the great state of Louisiana, its people and its businesses. We are honored to bring the ‘Back To School Tour’ to Tulane,” said Regina Gilgan, Executive Producer, “Mad Money w/Jim Cramer.”
