A gold market analyst who has long suggested the federal government was involved in manipulating the price of gold says he discovered proof of his allegations in six-year-old Federal Reserve Board meeting minutes.

The charges, first made by the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee in 1999, are allegedly borne out in Federal Reserve Board meeting minutes dated Jan. 31, 1995, which were discovered by GATA analyst Reginald Howe, who has filed a lawsuit against the Fed, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Bank for International Settlements and "various investment houses."

FRANKFURT, Aug. 24 -- At first glance it is indeed difficult to understand how a market, such as the gold market, which shows a chronic production deficit, is decaying during decades and how this results in prices that force an ever- increasing number of gold producers to abandon their business.

In the free market, which in the case of gold is being "made" by the leading business and investment banks, they have to take a good look at the solvency of their own clients as well their counterparties, when trading with derivatives.

More than a century has passed since gold and money played a leading role in the rhetoric of a presidential campaign. At the Democratic convention of 1896, William Jennings Bryan won the presidential nomination with a speech dishonoring the deeply held monetary beliefs of Jefferson and Jackson, thundering to the other party: "You shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns, you shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold."

An Open Letter to Members of the Press


It is time to wake up to what has been going on in the gold market. I can understand some initial reticence about grasping what The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee has been telling you: that the gold market is being manipulated. No one wants to believe that, but enough is enough. It is time to start asking some hard questions of your traditional sources of information who have been feeding you disinformation to keep you off guard about what certain bullion dealers have been doing with " a little help from their friends."

One of the most interesting things about this job is that you get to rub shoulders with the world's financial movers and shakers.

This is great cocktail party conversation fodder for impressing your fellows about Bob, Alan and Larry and how their tennis games are improving.

In this neck of the woods, however, the party chat about Dominique, Jean-Claude, Hans and Wim tends to be less interesting than the punch bowl.
