About

EconByte provides analysis of technology and other topical issues through the lens of economics. The website's name is the combination of 'Economics' and 'Byte', as in the group of eight binary bits.

The website itself is compiled with Jekyll, using a modified version of Monochrome.

Author

My name is Justin Pyvis, I hold a PhD in Economics and currently work at the Department of Treasury in Western Australia. I've previously worked at AECOM and more recently as an economist with Asianomics based in Hong Kong. Opinions expressed on these pages do not necessarily reflect the views of the WA Treasury.

Technology has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember (I coded my first website in the late 1990s while in high school), and I recently dabbled with my own data-focused startup. However, I quickly realised that my competitive advantage is in economics rather than coding, so EconByte is essentially my attempt to mesh the two together. Let's see how it goes!
