Yoram Bauman: Stand-Up Economics

Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. $5.


If you think there’s something, um, funny going on with the economy these days, you want to attend this. UW environmental economist Yoram Bauman, “the world’s first and only stand-up economist,” humorously explained microeconomics in his first book. Now the follow-up, The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, Vol. 2: Macroeconomics, illuminates the factors that affect the economy of an entire country: unemployment, inflation, debt, how economies grow and why they collapse, the labor market, and the GDP—all those terms you’ve heard in the news and wished you’d understood. In keeping with the theme, Seattle comedian Peter Greyy opens by roasting both the author and the idea of a cartoon book about economics. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.

Tickets are $5 at Brown Paper Tickets or 800/838-3006, and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating.
