Join Steven Menking as he interviews Chuck Coppes of IDP Consulting. Chuck and Steven approach the issues of the day and the underlying historical themes in order to present a basic overview of some of the core economic issues facing us today. What makes Chuck stand out in the crowd of economics commentators is his Christian faith. He includes analysis of prophecy and spiritual affairs in his materials, and this perspective allows for unique insights into our current predicaments.

Charles H. (Chuck) Coppes is the founder and president of IDP Consulting Group, an independent precious metals and consulting firm that assists clients with pension fund rollovers, commercial storage and physical delivery of precious metals. With a business background in sales and marketing for almost forty years, he has been a licensed securities broker and a featured guest on national radio programs, and is currently the host of The Reckoning Hour, a monthly podcast covering current affairs and economics. He is also a summa cum laude graduate with a degree in Christian Apologetics and Comparative Religions, and writes a free monthly newsletter that’s available at either of his websites. He is the author of America’s Financial Reckoning Day that provides an intriguing background of monetary history, macroeconomics and geopolitics that is prophetically shaping our world today, along with helpful advice for contrarian investors. 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” that include unsustainable sovereign debt, unfunded liabilities, and derivatives exposure that can lead to an eventual currency collapse, bond defaults, hyperinflation and threats to our civil liberties.
