Food for thought
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery.

Treasury's report on gold at Fed is like queen's visit to Bank of England's vault, Turk

Continuing his interview with King World News today, GoldMoney founder and GATA consultant James Turk says the U.S. Treasury's report this week on gold held by the Federal Reserve is the equivalent of Queen Elizabeth's recent visit to the Bank of England's gold vault. "It's trying to make people (and countries) feel comfortable that the gold is really there," Turk says. "But why should they keep gold in other vaults? We're not on a gold standard anymore. We don't need to have gold stored in different vaults around the world to settle international payments. The gold is really just a country's reserve, and the only way you can make certain that you have control of that reserve is to store it in your own central bank's vault."

An excerpt from the interview is posted at the King World News blog here:
