The world's first and only "stand-up economist," Yoram Bauman brings together humor, economic savvy, and environmental advocacy. He has performed at New York's Improv, Boston's Comedy Connection, and at ordinarily solemn venues like the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. He organized the first ever humor session at an American Economic Association annual meeting, and he has shared the stage with personalities as diverse as Robin Williams and Paul Krugman.
On the serious side, Bauman is an environmental economist. He earned a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Washington, and he teaches in the University’s award-winning Program on the Environment as well as at the Bainbridge Graduate Institute.
Bauman has written five books. His Tax Shift is about aligning tax incentives with goals such as reducing greenhouse emissions, and he has partnered with graphic novelist Grady Klein on a series of three “Cartoon Introduction” books covering microeconomics, macroeconomics, and climate change. The goal of this series is to make environmental economics understandable to lay readers. Finally, his Quantum Microeconomics is an e-textbook for introductory and intermediate students in the field.
He also serves as project economist for the Climate Leadership Initiative of the State of Washington, for which he researched and co-wrote Impacts of Climate Change on Washington’s Economy.
Bauman has garnered extensive media attention in both his academic and his comedic roles, with coverage in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the leading financial newspapers of Italy and Germany, among many others. He has appeared on the PBS Newshour and NPR’s Marketplace.
Bauman offers green and eco-themed comedic performances with content appropriate for conferences, businesses, and campuses. He also speaks seriously (with a few jokes added) on environmental economics, climate change economics, and related issues.
