Anthony Wile is an author, political analyst, financial markets commentator, entrepreneur and founder of several successful free-market oriented Internet sites including Free-Market News Network (FMNN) and The Daily Bell. In founding these sites, Anthony brought a perspective based on more than 20 years of financial and business experience working with growth-oriented companies in a variety of sectors. In aggregate, these free-market educational websites have reached millions of viewers and have remained on the cutting edge of alternative news publishing.
In 2004, while running FMNN, Wile was among the early adopters of video-Internet news programs. The programs included: This Week in Liberty with Harry Browne and Weekly World Report. In that same year, Wile secured the exclusive Internet broadcast rights for the third-party debates for the presidency of the United States. The debates, covered by the FMNN team of broadcasters including former two-time Libertarian candidate for US president, Harry Browne, were an enormous success, with more than 500,000 people logging on.
In 2008, Wile founded a Swiss-based publishing firm and started publishing The Daily Bell. Today, Wile continues to be the publication's Chief Editor. In 2009, Wile launched a non-profit foundation – The Foundation for the Advancement of Free-Market Thinking (FAFMT). Wile serves as FAFMT's Executive Director and has established an experienced advisory board consisting of some of today's leading free-market thinkers.
In 2003, Wile published his first book as Yang, entitled The Liberation of Flockhead. Wile's second book, High Alert, published under his own name in the summer of 2007, has been well received by the hard-money community and alternative media in general. In fact, Congressman Ron Paul says, "High Alert should be read by everyone who wishes to educate themselves about the dangers fiat money poses to American liberty and prosperity. I wish I could get every member of Congress to read this book."
High Alert is currently in its third edition and in addition to its native English edition, is available in German and Chinese as well. Wile has assisted with the completion of over a dozen additional free-market oriented books, working as a collaborative editor to several leading free-market thinkers.
Anthony Wile invented a term – dominant social theme – to encapsulate the process by which a powerful money elite deceives citizens into giving up their liberties. The process usually invokes the use of fear-based messaging that targets the bottom two levels of Maslow's heirarchy of needs, where the larger percentage of citizenry is trapped. Those are the people that Wile and FAFMT are focused on educating about the importance of accepting personal responsibility for their own lives and not selling their freedoms to elite peddlers of baseless economic and social dreams.
Wile also invented the term Internet Reformation, which describes the process by which the Internet, paralleling the impact of the Gutenberg Press before it, is challenging the modern structures erected and under the control of a power elite intent on implementing global governance.
Background: Anthony Wile was born in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1968. Wile graduated from Saint Mary's University (SMU) with a degree in business in 1991. Wile worked in the Canadian investment industry with Scotia McLeod (Bank of Nova Scotia) and Nesbitt Burns (Bank of Montreal). In 1994 Anthony Wile was made a Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute, which is a designation awarded to financial services professionals who attain advanced education and experience in the Canadian securities industry. Following his career in the mainstream Canadian securities industry, Wile co-founded a Bahamian-based offshore brokerage firm specializing in private asset management. The firm launched several funds, including a venture capital fund of which Wile was the manager. The firm was sold in 1999.
In 2000, Wile experienced a brief role as the CEO of a start-up junior mining company that became the subject of a civil attack by the SEC. Wile and others fought for more than seven years at great personal and financial expense before eventually settling the case without admitting any wrongdoing. The assets of the company in question were subsequently purchased by a New York Stock Exchange listed company and the properties have now produced more gold than was initially suggested. Hundreds of investors lost literally tens of millions in deserved future profits because the SEC accused the company of over-promising a merger that was actually taking place. Perhaps this experience adds to Wile's fervor to expose the power elite and their societal manipulations.
Anthony has visited every state in the US and every province and territory in Canada. Additionally, he has lived in several countries in several continents over the past three decades and has visited or done business in more than 60 countries. He currently resides in Toronto, Canada with his wife, Hillary, and their three children, Gabrielle, Jesse and Julian.
