The Department of Economics presents a stand-up comedy show by Yoram Bauman, “the world’s first and only stand-up economist."
Bauman has appeared in TIME Magazine, PBS, NPR and on YouTube where his videos have more than a million hits. He is the co-author of The Cartoon Introduction to Economics. He received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Washington and spends his non-comedy hours teaching in the UW environmental studies program, researching the economics of climate change and campaigning for environmental tax reform.

The event is sponsored by the Department of Economics, Texas Economics Association, ODE at UT, OECD Student Ambassador Program.
