Dr. Bauman will perform his sought-after "stand up economics" act focusing on climate policy and economics, which he's performed around the country at universities and prominent economics conferences to rave reviews.

From the speaker's bio: 

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. His goals in life are to spread joy to the world through economics comedy; to reform economics education; and to implement carbon pricing.
