The comic has a serious side as well. One minute, he's making fun of Libertarians ("Left-wing Libertarians want the freedom to do drugs, right-wing Libertarians want the freedom to use guns, and neither of them believe in Social Security. Although with those interests, who is going to make it to 65?"). The next minute he's pitching you his idea about environmental tax reform. In addition to being a comedian and an economist, Bauman has committed his life to "using the tools of economics and the power of capitalism to protect the environment."
