For individuals and organizations seeking custom guidance in addressing the economic and lifestyle implications of issues raised in the Crash Course , Chris is now available for private consultations.
Broadly alert to the implications of the most significant trends shaping the future, Chris will help you see the bigger picture as it applies to your situation and help you determine how best to prepare for it.
He will arm you or your company with knowledge and insight into the macro-events that will likely affect your finances, environment, and future.
Having correctly called the housing bubble, the rise in gold, the decline in the dollar, and the current difficulties spawned by derivatives and excessive debt, Chris' view of the future now includes several other "hidden in plain sight" risks and opportunities.
Chris offers guidance on wealth preservation, precious metal purchasing & storage strategies, and resiliency-building for individuals looking to protect the purchasing power of their assets and/or move without fear into the post-Peak-Oil future. He can offer guidance on personal transition, location, preparedness, community, and energy and infrastructure in the home.
During portfolio planning and review cycles, Chris offers a deeply-informed point of view and broad perspective regarding how to shape progressive initiatives for a future in flux. If your long-term view does not include his perspectives, your investments may be at risk of significant decline in purchasing power.
If your organization is not fully prepared to face a future defined by rising input costs and slowing economic growth, Chris can offer direction on how to strategically reposition. Chris’s corporate background includes many years of strategy and development, and he is intimately familiar with the value of the right point of view at the right moment in your planning process. If your plans go out more than a few quarters, you deserve to incorporate a broad view of the Three Es in your scenario plans.

“After years of being guided by Chris’ original research in the Crash Course and newsletter, I finally needed specific advice for our family. Chris has a unique ability to cover a lot of territory in our conversations with thoughtful precision and clarity. During a confusing time, Chris genuinely helped us make a very wise move to protect our assets. I usually have a range of small to large questions for Chris and by the end of the conversation, he’s given me practical tools, resources and peace of mind. After talking with Chris, he helped us change the trajectory of how we protect our assets, create resiliency and contribute to our sense of well being. I feel empowered after my conversations with Chris, because he’s helped me strengthen my own compass. In our conversations, Chris gives me concrete tools and practical resources to help me make my own wise decisions in the future. Sleeping well at night is invaluable to me and my quality of life was being compromised with worry. After consulting with Chris, I received the clarity I needed on several issues and was able to turn fear and confusion into positive action and find a quiet peace of mind.
In addition to the practical guidance from Chris, I find his sense of humor and grounded calm a huge asset when dealing with such important topics. At times it’s almost comical how many issues he can cover in a conversation...from buying property in a foreign country to rating local banks to specifics on what generator and fuel to buy. No question has ever been too small or large. Chris’ knowledge base is immense and I’ve always found his research to be original, cutting edge and solid. Being able to pick up the phone and talk with Chris has helped me make some really sound decisions and help a steep learning curve be a little gentler.
