Comedy bio, carbon tax bio, etc.

Comedy bio for Yoram Bauman (yur-AHM BAUW-min)

Please edit as you see fit: the shorter the better! And if you want the correct pronunciation of my name (I’m not particular about it, so don’t worry unless you want to), my first name rhymes with “your MOM” or “dot COM”. (Sadly, the domain name yoram.com is already taken.) Also, for the record I’m not a Professor; the easiest thing to say is that I’m an environmental economist, but if you really want a fancy title then go with Dr. Bauman.

Yoram Bauman, “the world’s first and only stand-up economist”, performs regularly at colleges and corporate events, sharing the stage with everyone from the late Robin Williams to Paul Krugman. He has appeared in TIME Magazine and on PBS and NPR, and is the co-author of the Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change and the two-volume Cartoon Introduction to Economics, which is now available in Mandarin, Mongolian, and a dozen other languages. Speaking of foreign languages, he is also the organizer of the humor session at the annual meeting of the American Economic Association.

Yoram now lives in Salt Lake City but spent the prior two decades in Seattle, where he was the founder of Carbon Washington, which in 2016 placed the first-ever carbon tax measure on the ballot in the United States. He has a BA in mathematics from Reed College and a PhD in economics from the University of Washington. His goals in life are to spread joy to the world through economics comedy; to reform economics education; and to implement carbon pricing.

Yoram Bauman makes a living as “the world’s first and only stand-up economist”, but he is also a PhD environmental economist who founded Carbon Washington, which in 2016 placed the first-ever carbon tax measure on the ballot in the United States. Yoram is the co-author of the Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change, the two-volume Cartoon Introduction to Economics, and the 1998 book Tax Shift, which helped inspire the revenue-neutral carbon tax in British Columbia. After 20 years in Seattle, Yoram now lives in Salt Lake City, but he takes his comedy act to colleges and corporate events around the country and around the world. He has a BA in mathematics from Reed College and a PhD in economics from the University of Washington. His goals in life are to spread joy to the world through economics comedy; to reform economics education; and to implement carbon pricing.
