The (Not So?) Dismal Science April 24, 2007

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Academically Speaking, Odds and Ends.

Economics can be such a humorless subject, what with endless graphs, dizzying equations, and more Greek letters than the average person knows what to do with. But it does have its moments. This is one of them, and anyone who’s ever taken an economics class will be able to relate all too well:

The speaker, Yoram Bauman, obtained his doctorate from and teaches at the University of Washington. As the title of his website indicates, he claims to be the world’s first and only “stand-up” economist (that is, he also does stand-up comedy).

One can only wonder what his classes are like.

(Thanks to Stephen for sending this my way.)
