Jim Cramer, host of the popular CNBC show Mad Money, graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and earned a law degree from Harvard. He later founded his own hedge fund, where he received record returns. In 1996, he co-founded TheStreet.com, a financial news, commentary, and information site, for which he serves as a senior columnist and markets commentator. He is also the host of the syndicated radio program RealMoney Radio, and he recently wrote his third book, Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World. Interviewer Stephen J. Adler is editor-in-chief of BusinessWeek.More
The 92nd Street Y in New York City is one of the cultural epicenters of interviewing. Paring insightful interviewers with notable guests, the Y is a landmark. In their series "The Captains of Industry", the Y invited Jim Cramer, famed hedge fund investor and host of NBC’s Mad Money, to speak with Stephen J. Adler, then editor-in-chief of Reuters. The conversation was recorded live in 2006.
While Cramer’s stock-picking record at Mad Money is highly questionable, his hedge fund broke records for profitability. Listeners will be curious to hear Cramer’s take on competing and succeeding as a non-elite against the prep school types.

Interviews with authors, such as Jim Cramer of CNBC (and author of several books on investing) provide a sense of who he is and where he came from. This was a good interview, and showed a side to Cramer that I had not seen before.
