Keith Weiner: Bond paying interest in gold would confirm metal's role as money


6:44p ET Thursday, August 16, 2018

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Keith Weiner, CEO of Monetary Metals in Scottsdale, Arizona, a sort of gold banking house that seeks to increase gold's use in finance, today appeals for signatures on a petition to Nevada's legislature in support of a proposal to authorize state government to issue bonds with interest payable in gold.

Such a state-issued bond, Weiner notes, would confirm gold's role as money even as respectable people don't want to think of it that way anymore.

It's hard to see why state government would object to the idea now that the gold price is getting smashed every day, reducing the burden of gold-denominated debt. Of course a rising gold price might do a lot more to reiterate gold's ancient function as money. But for that to happen the world may have to wait for surreptitious intervention in the gold market by the Bank for International Settlements to diminish. Instead it increased 17 percent in July:

Weiner's appeal is headlined "Who Would Invest in a Gold Bond?" and it's posted at the Monetary Metals internet site here:
