Hosted ByPeter Ricchiuti

OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. In his 9th year in the host seat, Ricchiuti's learned but uniquely NOLA informal perspective has established Out to Lunch as the voice of Crescent City business. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

Precious – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

The financial markets go up and down. The value of real estate goes up and down. The dollar strengthens and weakens. Financial advisors have a wide range of theories of risk versus diversification that they say can either make you a fortune, or hedge your bets. Through all this noise, there are investor voices who continue to say just two words. “Buy gold.” Is that good advice? Or is that just as risky as anything else?

One of the country’s leading experts on gold has been editing an industry newsletter called, simply, The Gold Newsletter for over two decades. His name is Brien Lundin. He happens to be a New Orleanian. And in an even greater stroke of good fortune he’s Peter Ricchiuti’s guest on this edition of Out to Lunch.

If you want to wear gold, rather than just buy it, you could turn to Peter’s other guest, Tiffany Adler. Tiffany is Vice President and 4th generation of her family business, called simply, Adler’s.
