Stand Up Economist

Paul H. Rubin —  16 April 2011

For our department seminar last week the speaker was Yoram Bauman, the Stand Up Economist.  Yoram is  a serious economist with a Ph.D. from the University of Washington.  He has been organizing a humor session at the AEA meetings (where my colleague Hugo Mialon presented his well known paper on Faking). What I want to say here is that Yoram is really funny.  He had an audience of undergraduates, graduate students and professors ROTFLOL (rolling on the floor laughing out loud).  If an organization you belong to is looking for some serious economics humor Yoram is your man.
