Finely Balanced is a weekly newsletter on the ever-changing economic and technological issues of the day. It was created by me, Justin Pyvis, an Economics PhD, part-time coder/designer/tech enthusiast and Senior Analyst with Treasury Western Australia.

I've previously lived in Melbourne, Sydney, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Victoria (Canada) and Tauranga, spending more than a decade of my professional career analysing and writing about economic issues across the world. Finely Balanced is my way of sharing my thoughts on the issues that I think matter.


What is now Finely Balanced was once known as EconByte, as in the super witty combination of 'Economics' and 'Byte'. The entire project was (and still is) bootstrapped and coded by me over too many weekends. It was originally powered by Jekyll, then Craft, and now Ghost.

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 Finely Balanced or how often so will never sell or share what little information is collected (literally just an email address - read the super short disclaimer).
