Comedy, Economics, and Climate Change!
- Environmental Economist, Stand-Up Comedian
In this funny and educational talk, Bauman will make a humorous case for reforming our tax system and tackling climate change with a revenue-neutral carbon tax that places higher taxes on fossil fuels and uses the revenue to reduce existing taxes.
Bauman, “the world’s first and only stand-up economist,” performs regularly at colleges and corporate events. He has appeared in TIME Magazine and on PBS and NPR, and co-authored the two-volume Cartoon Introduction to Economics. Bauman has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Washington.
