About Apricitas

The beauty of economics is in its humanity. Every day, every single person on this planet contributes to and participates in the systems and processes that economists study. The goal, at the end of the day, of all economic study is to find ways to improve our understanding of those processes and to use that understanding to make improvements in people’s real lives.

Apricitas is the Latin word for sunshine and sunniness. It’s a name that embodies the ethos of this blog: positivity, optimism, and a commitment to seeking truth through evidence.

Maybe you’ve heard that Quantitative Easing increases inequality or that lower unemployment means higher inflation and want to know if it’s really true (No to both—but it’s complicated). Or maybe you just want to know how pricing dynamics work in the digital economy or if stablecoins really are that stable. All that, and more, is covered in Apricitas.
