Diccon Hyatt is a financial and economics news reporter for Investopedia since January 2023. Previously at The Balance, Diccon covered the pandemic economy and the seismic changes in the financial world since 2020.

Diccon writes daily news stories, reports enterprise features, and creates infographics. During his two years at The Balance, he wrote hundreds of stories breaking down complex financial topics in plainspoken language, emphasizing the impact that economic currents would have on individuals' finances. And he is turning that same passion for economic news and helping readers understand what the day's news means for their bottom line to Investopedia.

Diccon started out working in local journalism. He was the business editor of U.S. 1, a weekly publication covering business in central New Jersey's high-tech Route 1 Corridor. He was previously an editor of community newspapers at Community News Service in Mercer County, New Jersey. His first job in journalism was as a reporter at the Middletown Transcript, a weekly newspaper in Delaware.


Diccon earned a Bachelor's degree in English at the University of Delaware, and cut his teeth in journalism there at The Review, the student newspaper, where he was a features editor.
