Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Interviewed by King World News today, former Assistant U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts marvels at the perversion of ordinary markets by derivatives and particularly the explosion of paper claims on gold that doesn't exist.

"What this shows," Roberts says, "is the consequence of repealing the position limits on speculation, because you now have a situation where derivatives drive the actual physical market. This is the exact opposite of what sound economics would have. ... At some point even the people gambling in this market have got to see this can't continue to work. I don’t really understand how it's gone on this long, and I don't see how it can continue, particularly when the paper claims so vastly exceed the actual supply."
