Etsy for Economists

Economists may think there’s nothing for them on Etsy, the website that sells handmade and vintage arts and crafts items, usually made by grandmas or some overeducated Brooklyn mom. But they would be wrong. Dork out with these statistical distribution pillows:

Log Distribution? Continuous Uniform? Even Chi-Square! It’s all here. And it also turns out, Normal Distribution makes a really good doorstop

    There’s also Etsy *by* Economists — check out Bliss Point Creations (blisspointcreations.etsy.com). Fun & pretty stuff made by an actual working Economist in her spare time.

    That’s a rather condescending comment, don’t you think? Unless it’s true, of course. How about some analysis? Just who does crafting and e-marketing?
