Lenny Alsfeld on this week's Out to Lunch with Peter Ricchiuti.

If you were born in 2004 and you’re now in 8th grade, you’ve never known a time when New Orleans wasn’t Hollywood South. Hold on to those memories. By the time you get to college nobody will believe you’d see Tom Cruise at the football game or Matthew McConaughey in the park.

If things keep going the way they are, the dismantling of the state’s film tax credits will make Hollywood South a golden era that’s never coming back. Or is it?

Peter's guests on Out to Lunch today have a range of options by which we might yet live to see a sequel.

Peter Ricchiuti is the finance professor you wish you had back in college! His insight and humor have twice made him the top professor at Tulane University's A.B. Freeman School of Business. After a successful career on Wall Street, Ricchiuti served for five years as Assistant State Treasurer and Chief Investment Officer for the State of Louisiana. There he skillfully managed the State's $3 billion investment portfolio.
