There Is A Funny Economist Out There

No, really, there is. My students will find this hard to believe after the groaners I tell in class. But Yoram Bauman, who has a Ph. D. in economics from the University of Washington, calls himelf a "stand up economist." He performs all over the country. Here is a link to his site:

I wonder if he is related to Comicus, the first stand up philosopher? (who said the Christians are so poor, they can only afford to have one God) Anyway, the site has a video which you can watch.

Bauman also has a site called

You might be an economist if….

My students will find it rewarding to look at. For example, it says "you might be an economist if you refuse to sell your children because you think they’ll be worth more later."
