sending gold off daily price highs, or gold closes

Meanwhile commodity prices have risen all year, with
crude oil leading the way. Even with all the strongarm

I blame some of it on myself. But I blame the rest of
it on the government. Inflation has arrived, but no one
will admit it.

Even as we continue to read data that indicates the
economy is slowing, the I-word goes officially
unuttered, and the Fed withholds its option to raise
interest rates. Commander Alan Greenspan placates a

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA is going back to Congress with a couple of
specific questions that we think can bring down the
manipulation of the gold market if the government is
compelled to answer them.

Friends of GATA in the United States can help us by
adding their voice to the clamor for answers. If you
live in the United States, will you consider sending a

Dotting sides of buildings in Paris are many little
plaques proclaiming, "Ici est tombe...." They mark spots
where members of the Resistance fell during the street
fighting that preceded the liberation of Paris in
August 1944. Close inspection of nearby wall areas
often reveals bullet scars.

Yet many French display a certain ambivalence toward

Gold At $2,500?

Leigh Goehring manages over $400 million worth of
metals, energy, and paper stocks for Prudential
Investments in Newark, New Jersey, and manages them
well. Over the past five years, his Prudential Natural
Resources fund has returned an annualized 10.9 percent

South Africa's AngloGold is being tipped as the most
likely suitor for Normandy Mining, the Australian gold

"Ah! tenez, vous etes de la merde dans un bas de soie."

With this much quoted insult Napoleon concluded his
famous tirade against Talleyrand in 1809, an outburst
of anger that most expected would end with the grand
