James West

James is a self-taught writer, investor, and armchair economist. He’s studied economics, history, literature, monetary policy, mining, agriculture, physics, programming, internet, filmmaking, and music. He is financed and runs multiple businesses.

James is irreverent, controversial and anti-establishment. He hates all government hypocrisy. He believes the markets are designed by the financial elite for the sole purpose of stealing everyone’s wealth. He believes governments are employed by the financial elite to steal everything in sight and send it up the food chain. He believes the Wall Street guys are whores.

James loves it when the little guy wins. He’s a huge fan of self-reliance, going off grid, hunting, fishing, and growing his own food. Last year, James bought a farm in southern Ontario, named Cardinal Farm. In addition to working on the grounds, he’s completely restoring the main home, originally built in 1910.
