Principles of Economics Translated – Yoram Bauman, Ph.D.

Yoram Bauman, a standup economist, deconstructs Greg Mankiw’s 10 Principles of Economics. In short order Yoram explains away tradeoffs, incentives, margins and markets. They become more common concepts of choices, people, governments, and stupidity (and limits of stupidity).

Greg Mankiw clearly doesn’t take this too personally, he blogged about Yoram twice, and by his own estimation, may have sold a few more books for him.

Editor’s Note: Much of this post was borrowed liberally from Brady’s post on the main Ignite web site.

One thought on “Principles of Economics Translated – Yoram Bauman, Ph.D.”

  1. Ha! That video was hilariously accurate. You’d think Mankiw would learn a little something from it. I guess now I’m going to have to buy the book.
