Peter Ricchiuti (Ri-Chooty) is the finance professor you wish you had back in college! He is the assistant dean at Tulane University's A. B. Freeman School of Business and his insight and humor have twice made him the School's top professor. After a successful career on Wall Street Peter served for five years as the assistant state treasurer and chief investment officer for the State of Louisiana. There he skillfully managed the State's three billion-dollar investment portfolio.

1993 Peter founded the BURKENROAD REPORTS investment research program.

He and his program have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post and CNN.

Peter has contributed to several financial sources including National Public Radio's Marketplace program. He is a popular speaker at meetings and conferences and his unique presentation style puts him in front of a wide variety of audiences including his selection by the NFL to teach investment workshops to the New Orleans Saints.

Inflation or Deflation? What's Ahead? - Policymakers fret about deflation and consumers still think inflation will make it tough to pay the bills. What gives? The economy is being affected by both extremes.

Contrarian Thinking: Why You'll Never Get Rich following the Crowd - If a majority of the people were right a majority of the people would be rich... and they're not! We'll see why a "contrary" outlook isn't always popular but often leads to excellent returns.
