Bloomberg interviews Greenspan but evades the crucial gold question


2:15p ET Monday, June 27, 2016

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Bloomberg Radio and Television today interviewed former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan for more than a half hour --

-- but while at the 18:25 mark he praised the gold standard and called himself a "gold bug," his questioners declined to ask him the crucial question, the question about surreptitious trading in the gold market by the U.S. government and other governments.

Documentation of that market intervention and its objective of suppressing the gold price has been delivered to Bloomberg by GATA many times and can be found here:

A similar question was posed to New York Fed President William Dudley at a public forum in Virginia in March, and he evaded it with a clumsy non-sequitur that would have caught the attention of financial journalism around the world if there was any:

So maybe posing the question would have made this one Bloomberg's last interview with Greenspan.
