Late Night Comedy Show With -- Stand-up Economist Yoram Bauman Plus Student Opening Acts
Yoram Bauman - hour-long stand-up shows aim to spread joy to the world through economics comedy; to reform economics education; and to advocate carbon pricing, preferably through a revenue-neutral tax shift involving lower taxes on things we like (working, saving, investing) and higher taxes on things we don't like (e.g., carbon).
Yoram Bauman, is "the world's first and only stand-up economist," performs regularly at colleges and corporate events, sharing the stage with everyone from Robin Williams to Paul Krugman. He has appeared in TIME Magazine and on PBS and NPR, and is the organizer of the humor session at the annual meeting of the American Economic Association. An environmental economist with a Ph.D. from the University of Washington, he is part of the CarbonWA.org effort to bring a revenue-neutral carbon tax to Washington State. Yoram is co-author of the two-volume Cartoon Introduction to Economics, the forthcoming Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change, and the 1998 book Tax Shift, which was written with Alan Durning of Sightline Institute and helped inspire the revenue-neutral carbon tax in British Columbia. In 2011, he worked in Beijing as a visiting scholar at the University of International Business and Economics.
