OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. Each week Peter invites guests from the New Orleans business renaissance to join him. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Inc magazine have all named New Orleans the best city in the USA to be an entrepreneur. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the new New Orleans entrepreneurial movement. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

We’ve seen major sectors of the US economy change over the last few years. Retail and energy have both been shaken up. But probably nothing has gotten more people shaken up than changes in healthcare.
Peter's guests on this edition of Out to Lunch are shaking up healthcare in New Orleans.
Dr. Mark Berenson’s clinic is a black Samsonite bag. Dr. Berenson is New Orleans’ only house call doctor.
Dr. Richard Milani is pioneering the use of new technology – like the Apple Watch – for the biggest healthcare provider in town, Ochsner Health System.
Dr. Jose Calderon is a psychiatrist with an unorthodox approach to mental health called Mindful Psychiatry. But he can’t be all that crazy – as well as his private practice in New Orleans, Dr. Calderon is a consultant to Harvard University and the Mexican Government.
