Is the U.S. heading for fiscal bankruptcy? It is according to David Walker, Comptroller General for the Government Accounting Office in a recent interview on CBS 60 Minutes (7/8/07). "I would argue that the most serious threat to the United States is not someone hiding in a cave in Afghanistan or Pakistan, but our own fiscal irresponsibility," says Walker. "We suffer from a fiscal cancer. And if we do not treat it, it could have catastrophic consequences for our country."
Not only could our fiscal irresponsibility have catastrophic consequences for our country - there is a growing consensus among Wall Street economist and analysts that we are indeed facing a financial reckoning day. In his new book, America's Financial Reckoning Day, author Charles H. Coppes has carefully documented our nation's path to financial ruin and provides the reader with an intriguing background of U.S. monetary history leading up to the creation of the Federal Reserve System and the growth of our modern Welfare State. For the baby-boom generation this is a serious wake-up call that domestic and foreign issues are converging to script the perfect financial storm - everything from asset bubbles, trade deficits, unfunded liabilities and derivatives exposure to an eventual bond liquidation, currency collapse and hyperinflation. With sobering and exacting detail, this book presents a clear case for America's geopolitical obsolescence and the rise of the European Union as a superpower along with China's economic future, the politics of oil, and the prophetic implications of war in the Middle East.
America's Financial Reckoning Day provides a comprehensive briefing with helpful charts and explanations for busy lay readers who are short of time but are anxious to understand the critical times that we are living in. Written from a distinctly Christian worldview similar to the enormously successful Left Behind Series, this text concludes with an inspirational message of hope along with some sensible investment and hedging strategies for contrarian investors.
