“Mr. DAVID McWILLIAMS (Economist): What we’ve done is we’ve taken together Ireland’s finest standup comedians and some of the world’s finest economists. And we’ve come together for the first of its kind, which is an economics festival where the comedians ask the questions of the economists.”
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Economics, the neverending recesssion, comedy… What’s not to like?
Well… Why isn’t Yoram Bauman involved? Ph.D from the University of Washington, author of The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, Volume 1: Microeconomics, and, oh yeah, a comedic translation of Mankiw’s principles so sharp and pointed Mankiw himself linked to a video interview of Bauman?
Why, indeed? It’s not like Bauman is obscure in this field. If you google “economics comedy”, the results are full of references to Bauman.
So… What happened? You wuz robbed, Yoram!
