Feeling bearish about the state of the world? Lift your spirits with an evening of stand-up comedy about economics and politics with Dr. Yoram Bauman, environmental economist, founder of Carbon Washington - which in 2016 placed the first-ever carbon tax measure on the ballot in the United States - and "the world's first and only stand-up economist." Bauman's goals in life are to spread joy to the world through economics comedy; to reform economics education; and to implement carbon pricing. This event is co-sponsored by Duke Economics, the UPEP Environmental Institutions Seminar, and the Economics Student Union.
