Free candy bar more appealing to Californians than a free gold coin

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Writer and provocateur Mark Dice this week once again took to the sunny streets of Encinitas, California, just north of San Diego, to reconfirm the ignorance of Americans -- or Californians, anyway -- about the monetary metals, as he offered passersby the choice of a free 10th-ounce gold coin or a free Snickers candy bar. If the three-minute video Dice has posted at You Tube about his experiment is representative, he couldn't give away the gold coin and even sometimes had a hard time giving away the candy. At least one fellow accosted by Dice recognized that a social experiment of sorts was in progress, though he couldn't quite figure it out.

Odds are that Dice will not attempt this experiment in Mumbai, Ho Chi Minh City, or Shanghai.

The video is posted at You Tube here:
