About Me

Peter Lyons is the editor of the Drunk Economist. A regular columnist for the New Zealand Herald and Otago Daily Times, he teaches scholarship-level Economics and has authored several national school curriculum texts. Pete has a passion for financial literacy, world history, travel, geo-political affairs and stoic philosophy. All of which influence his writing.

Perplexed by the mainstream media's reluctance to publish his oft-provocative opinions, the Drunk Economist was born. Pete's ideas and inspiration often come after a wee dram of whiskey. That's when dry economic concepts flow into sticky real-life situations people can relate too.


So if you're ever stuck in a room full of economists, grab the seat next to Pete. For  conversation peppered with wit, wisdom and economic weirdness.
