Environmental economist and the “world’s first and only stand-up economist,” Bauman engages audiences with a mashup that is one-part Economics Primer, one-part stand-up comedy routine to break down barriers to complex economic ideas and build awareness and momentum for issues around global climate crisis. With healthy amounts of razor-sharp wit and some seductive graphs and charts, Bauman slyly moves from humor to a compelling discussion on how carbon tax might be turned into a made-in-America solution.
