GRAND FORKS – CNBC’s “Mad Money” show will originate Wednesday from western North Dakota’s oil fields, part of the program’s “Invest in America” series.

“Some people are asking if this region, in the middle of nowhere, just might be the solution to the U.S.’ three biggest problems – unemployment, an addiction to foreign oil and a faltering economy,” according to a release about the program.

Host Jim Cramer will cover the story of the oil boom in North Dakota’s Bakken Shale region, “focusing on jobs, technology, infrastructure and the American pioneer spirit,” according to the release.

“Mad Money” airs at 5 p.m. and repeats at 10 p.m.

Another CNBC reporter will report live from North Dakota throughout the day on how the boom has impacted the area, including longtime residents “and the men and women who are flocking there in droves to make their fortune.”
