By James Turk
The Freemarket Gold & Money Report

This past December in my essay "The Smoking Gun" I

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The journalist Anne Williamson spoke brilliantly to the
April 4 meeting of the Committee for Monetary Research
and Education in New York. Since her criticism of the
credit bubble is aimed at the international economic
order that GATA also is out to disturb, Williamson's
remarks may be of interest to you, so I'm appending
them here.

Get ready to blame the people for the credit bubble
