The history and founding of America is almost a fairy tale of providence and good fortune. As the late Dr. Peter Marshall has recounted in his classic book, The Light and the Glory, no other nation has been blessed with such an abundance of material wealth and rich spiritual heritage as the United States of America. In 1787, our Founding Fathers established a near-perfect system of representative government and sound monetary policy as outlined in the US Constitution.
Yet, as our nation enters the 21st Century there is a great foreboding that our debt-based economy is facing unprecedented fiscal challenges in addition to serious macroeconomic and geopolitical developments that could lead to our dramatic decline on the world stage. How has this happened to the most powerful nation on earth, and what will be the likely outcome of these current events? To answer these questions, it is necessary to thoroughly examine the monetary history of the US up to the present hour, and also give some serious consideration to ancient prophecies that are foretold in the Holy Bible.
In 1910, a small group of Wall Street bankers conspired to create the ultimate money trust, or banking cartel, now known as the Federal Reserve System. The creation of our nation’s central bank has been responsible for boom and bust cycles, malinvestment, rampant inflation, market manipulations and other crimes. The creation, structure, and operation of the Fed is a sad legacy of hidden taxation and market intervention that needs to be clearly understood by all.
This is a distinctly non-partisan issue. It is a topic of extreme importance since each and every American is trusting in the value of their currency system and working hard to invest and save for their financial futures. It is why we get up and go to work every day. It is, as Austrian economist and social philosopher Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) has stated in his classic volume Human Action, our individual responsibility to understand the basic teachings of economics:

In order to understand our looming financial collapse, it is necessary to have a broad acquaintance with many factors - fiscal, political, historical, cultural, and religious. Such a prospect in itself is hard enough to fathom without having to condense it all in one volume, but that's exactly what the author of this important book has achieved. This wonderful work of lucid reasoning and elegant elaboration is quite an adventure and education. Of the many books written about this timely issue, this one may be the most insightful and highly detailed. To not read this book in our present reality is to bury one's head in the sand and believe that if one ignores the approaching catastrophe one can avoid its disastrous effects.

America's Financial Reckoning Day is to American economics what A Brief History of Time was to physics. It provides, in layman's terms, an explanation of who we are, how we got here (based on history, not emotion), and where we are most assuredly headed. This is not a book for dummies, but it is definitely readable for everyone who is interested and engaged. This writer has a way of turning a phrase, and that is saying a mouthful when the subject is economics. He somehow tricks you into reading one paragraph after another, and all of a sudden you feel, well, I'm going to say it: enlightened. America's Financial Reckoning Day is an opportunity for the intelligent, inquisitive student of American politics and history to understand our place in the world. Mr. Coppes has clearly done his homework. I feel like I have been paying very close attention to political events for the past thirty years, but to my surprise, this book caused me to raise my eyebrows on almost every page. The actions and reactions of our economy and the economies of the other big players on the world money stage are described with names, dates, and times, easily verifiable and in detail. This book is not for people who can describe their philosophy on a bumper sticker. It is not for people who want to read an "I'm Okay, You're Okay" self-help book to instant success in troubled times. This book is for the brave of heart; for the individual who is willing to be surprised and to change how they feel about ideas they have held dear, perhaps for decades. It is for those who know when the going gets tough, the tough are already locked and loaded. For others, for those who just want to stumble along and hope that tomorrow everything will be better; probably not the book for them. If I had one prayer answered this week, I would ask God to make this required reading for high school seniors, two pages per day, for the entire school year. There would be no need for a test; the students who read it would be wide-eyed and already preparing for the future.
Mr. Coppes has a rare ability to synthesize knowledge and teach it in a way that is compelling for both beginner and expert. Albert Einstein said, "Things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." Mr. Coppes has done it. I reserve the highest rating for America's Financial Reckoning Day.

Chuck Coppes writes in a very elegant and easy to understand manner.
This book is a serious page turner tutorial that is easy for the lay person who may have never studied economics such as myself.
This book is the economics of prophecy, and the prophecy of economics combined. Eye opening to say the least, well written, well researched, well done.
John Franklin Smith, Jr.
America's Financial Reckoning Day is the best practical guide on how to protect your finances. Chuck also shows the reader spiritual hope. It's like the Trinity of financially written books. Thank you Mr. Coppes.

Mr. Coppes book is incredibly important and might just save you from losing your hard earned investments when America faces it's Financial Reckoning Day. I recommend you buy several copies for your loved ones and friends.
I very much appreciate that this book was written from a Christian point of view. I think that is so crucial. We are heading for incredibly challenging times, and people need to understand what is coming and what they can do to get prepared. I hope that as many people as possible will get this book.
Charles Coppes has inspired and informed us with the necessary wisdom and vision to weather the coming economic storm. This book combines Biblical prophecies concerning this era and that of our past and offers us insights to our financial infrastructure. I highly recommend it!
This is not just a book, it's a course on monetary history and should be a "must read" at the high school level and included in a must take course at the college level.Thanks Chuck for the education.
Great book with real insight. The author has done a very credible job of researching the subject and combining that wealth of knowledge with his own insights. I've bought copies for friends!

Very few men are capable of contributing any consequential idea to the body of economic thought. But all reasonable men are called upon to familiarize themselves with the teachings of economics. This is, in our age, the primary civic duty. Whether we like it or not, it is a fact that economics cannot remain an esoteric branch of knowledge accessible only to small groups of scholars and specialists. Economics deals with society’s fundamental problems; it concerns everyone and belongs to all. It is the main and proper study of every citizen (www.mises.org).
THANK YOU for all of your efforts! They are appreciated more than you can ever realize.
