EconByte is a free weekly newsletter examining the most interesting bits of economics, technology, privacy and security. It was created by me, Justin Pyvis, a PhD Economist, part-time coder/designer/tech enthusiast and Senior Analyst with Treasury Western Australia.
I first started coding and designing websites while in high school (late '90s / early '00s) and have blogged on and off since about 2001. This website is my most recent and only active blog/newsletter, and it's where I dish out my two bob on everything economics/technology each week.
In terms of the name, the 'Econ' in EconByte is short for economics, which is used as a tool to think more clearly about the world, from examining incentives and trade-offs to the unintended consequences that stem from the problems (and proposed solutions) of the day. The 'Byte' is not short for anything, it's just a Byte (i.e. eight bits).

Never miss out on an issue by subscribing to the newsletter. Issues are delivered via email once a week, usually on a Monday or Tuesday morning Australian time. Each issue is compiled entirely in my free time, usually on a Saturday. I don't care who reads EconByte or how often so will never sell or share what little information is collected (just your email and country - read the super short disclaimer).
Last and most importantly, I hope you like reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!
