James Charles Bennett (born 1948) is an American businessman, with a background in technology companies and consultancy, and a writer on technology and international affairs from a conservative point of view.

During the 1980s he was involved in space-launch ventures, being a founder in 1985 of American Rocket Company (AMROC) whose technology found its way into SpaceShipOne. In the 1990s he was a technology consultant. He is President and Chairman of Internet Transactions Transnational, Inc., a 1997 Internet start-up, and Vice Chairman of Openworld, Inc., a nonprofit group promoting sustainable self-help initiatives. As of 2011, he is a proponent of fundamental reform of the U.S. government space program, both in its civilian and military manifestations.[1]

His publications and quotes like “democracy, immigration, multiculturalism… pick any two”,[2] popularising the idea of Anglospheric exceptionalism in a similar vein as Mark Steyn, have been called misleading and arrogant right-wing propaganda by the Left and Eurocentrics.[3] He was a columnist for United Press International 2000-3, with a weekly piece The Anglosphere Beat; he has propagated the idea of the Anglosphere as significant, as of 2004, in world affairs and alignments. His book-length study The Anglosphere Challenge: Why the English-Speaking Nations Will Lead the Way in the Twenty-First Century was published in 2004. He is co-founder and current President of the Anglosphere Institute of Alexandria, Virginia.

He is also is an Adjunct Senior Fellow of the Hudson Institute, and a contributor to its publications. In addition, Mr. Bennett serves as an Expert at Wikistrat.[4]
