Evil Capitalist is the online nickname of a Wikipedian living in Nottinghamshire and Cambridge in the United Kingdom. Currently he is a graduate student studying economic history at Trinity College, Cambridge. Although he undertook sporadic edits from 2004 onwards, in summer 2005 he registered formally, mainly in order to give people someone to shout at if they disagreed with his large-scale editing of topics relating to British education since 1944.
Interests and knowledge cover most forms of history, particularly that of the UK and the United States. Particular fascinations include areas of historical geography and economic history that involve many statistics and few individuals. Writing style has a tendency to go into unnecessary detail, in the mistaken belief that further information only makes things clearer. Most likely to be found filling in areas where the existing articles are either sparse or have grown over time without being properly organised.
