Stand-up comic/economist Yoram Bauman appears at GU on Nov. 14

Yoram Bauman, a pretty funny and witty guy, will make his first Spokane appearance Nov. 14 at Gonzaga University.

Bauman calls himself “the world’s first stand-up economist.” This YouTube video here shows him at work recently at a Seattle club.

Sadly, his GU appearance will not be at a club, and it won't be after dark. It's part of the GU Business Administration Dean's Business Forum, and it starts at 7:30 a.m. It's at the Jepson Center’s Wolff Auditorium.

HIs show is titled “Comedy, Economics, and Climate Change” and tickets will be $15 for the public, $5 for GU students.

A continental breakfast will be served starting at 7 a.m.

According to a GU release, Bauman is co-author of “Cartoon Introduction to Economics” and the 1998 book “Tax Shift,” which was written with Alan Durning of the Sightline Institute and helped inspire the revenue-neutral carbon tax in British Columbia.
