An excerpt published in The New Yorker magazine from James Ledbetter's new book, "One Nation Under Gold," describes the efforts of the U.S. government in the late 1960s to facilitate gold production without increasing the official gold price of $35 per ounce. The excerpt may be most remarkable for showing that once upon a time mining interests in the American West were capable of mobilizing their members of Congress against official price suppression. Fortunately for the U.S. government today, most gold and silver mining companies couldn't care less about price suppression, as they have little respect for their shareholders. The excerpt is headlined "The Strange Secret History of Operation Goldfinger" and it's posted at The New Yorker here:
