Hello everyone. I would like to extend a special greeting to those Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee supporters who have come from all over the world to attend this conference.

The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee has come up with more evidence that the gold market has been manipulated since 1995 than the Bush Administration has produced evidence showing Osama Bin Laden was responsible for the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Crimson Staff Writer

Currency bearing University President Lawrence H. Summers' signature isn't the only lingering reminder of his time as Treasury Secretary. This week, a U.S. District Court judge in Boston scheduled an October 9 hearing on a motion to dismiss a lawsuit that names Summers as a defendant.

GATA Says Much of U.S. Gold Reserve is Encumbered - CBS MarketWatch

Section:

DALLAS, Aug 15, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- "Hard as it is to fathom, it appears that much of America's gold is essentially gone or in severe jeopardy," says Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Chairman Bill Murphy.

An SDR, which is acronym for Special Drawing Rights a.k.a. 'paper gold,' is a monetary instrument issued by the International Monetary Fund, representing special drawing rights for one 35th of an ounce of gold.

Top Fed Lawyer Says '95 FOMC Transcript Misquoted Him. - By Joseph Rebello - Dow Jones Newswires

Section:

A top lawyer at the Federal Reserve has disavowed remarks attributed to him about the U.S. Treasury's use of gold swaps in foreign economic bailouts and currency-stabilization efforts, saying he was misquoted by the central bank's transcribers.

Virgil Mattingly, general counsel to the Federal Open Market Committee, wrote Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan last month that he couldn't recall making the remarks attributed to him in transcripts of a January 1995 FOMC meeting. Those remarks were seized upon by the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, a private group that contends the Fed and the Treasury secretly have been selling gold to suppress prices.

sale of 60% of Britain's gold reserves by the end of

The price of bullion soared to around £204 an ounce
($300) on global markets this week because investors tend to
turn to gold at times of turbulence in the world
economy, seeing it as a hedge against future inflation.
