Guest lecture: Yoram Bauman on Carbon Taxes


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!
