We are happy to announce that in Week 12 of the Public Finance course, we will be joined by Yoram Bauman, Ph.D.,
known as "the world's first and only stand-up economist", who will present a lecture on carbon taxes.
You can join us on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 from 2 PM via MS Teams here.
You might know Yoram Bauman from his popular funny talk "Principles of Economics, translated".
Apart from being a "stand-up economist", he is a great actual economist whose work focuses on carbon taxes.
He was the founder and co-chair of the first-ever carbon tax ballot measure campaign in the United States (the I-732 effort in Washington State in 2016), and he continues to be involved in state-level carbon pricing efforts around the country.
He has experience teaching economics and environmental studies at both colleges and high schools, and has co-authored cartoon books about economics, climate change, and calculus.
After Yoram Bauman's talk on carbon taxes, we will also have some time for discussion - we encourage you all to use this opportunity to discuss and learn about carbon pricing and climate change!
