Peter Brimelow (born 1947) is a British American financial journalist, author, and founder of VDARE.

Brimelow was born in 1947 in Warrington, Lancashire, England. He studied at the University of Sussex (BA, 1970) and received an MBA from Stanford University in 1972. Brimelow subsequently emigrated to Canada. After a brief stint as a securities analyst, he settled down in Toronto and became a business writer and editor at the Financial Post and MacLean's magazine. From 1978 to 1980, he was an aide to senator Orrin Hatch in Washington D.C. In 1980 he moved to New York, working mainly for Barron's and Fortune. Brimelow was senior editor of Forbes Magazine from 1986 to 2002. He was married to Maggy Laws Brimelow (1953-2004), a Canadian, until her death after an eight-year battle with breast cancer. He and his late wife have two children, a son and a daughter. He married Lydia Sullivan, then 22, in 2007.

Brimelow's books include the national best-seller "", "The Wall Street Gurus: How You Can Profit from Investment Newsletters", "The Worm In The Apple: How The Teacher Unions Are Destroying American Education" and "The Patriot Game: Canada and the Canadian Question Revisited". "Alien Nation" deals with immigration policy and the influx of illegal aliens as well as legal immigrants. "The Worm in the Apple" discusses the adverse effects of public education and teachers' unions on American youth.

The "New York Times" accused him of labeling Jews as non-white people, a position commmon among paleoconservatives. He denied this but said that they were one of many minority groups in the Clinton administration. []
