I’m Herman James, the founder and editor-in-chief of Market Sanity. I am also a professional trader with 10+ years of experience.

Market Sanity is a financial blog founded in 2013 that seeks to educate others on THE TRUTH about investing, economics, politics, geopolitics and liberty. Market Sanity shares quality interviews and articles on dozens of investors and authors who are also motivated by sharing the truth, to the best of their knowledge. These successful men and women help steer others through the insanity and are often known as “contrarian” investors. Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, Jim Rickards, Max Keiser, Danielle DiMartino Booth, Doug Casey, Gerald Celente, Ron Paul, Peter Schiff and many others on this site help people answer the big question: “What the heck is really going on in the world right now?”

Market Sanity aims to share the treasure trove of wisdom these gurus offer free of charge. I am personally passionate in what these men and women value: thinking for yourself, self-reliance, liberty, investing/trading, free-markets, personal resilience and financial independence. These are all values I consider to be vital to any free man, woman or child from any nation, religion or social class who wishes to make a better life for themselves and their families.

I don’t claim to be an expert on these topics – I am simply trying to share information I find valuable in my own journey in the hope that it will also provide value to you.

At Market Sanity, customer service is imperative. If you’re experiencing any difficulties with the site, have any suggestions, or simply want to say hello, please do not hesitate to contact me. I also try to answer all emails as soon as I can.

I appreciate each and every one of you very much, and you’re the reason I do this 365 days a year. Thank you for visiting the site!
