Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Benn Steil, an economist for the Council on Foreign Relations whose essay in January in the Financial Times turned some heads by musing favorably about the practicality of a digital gold currency (, did the same today in an interview on National Public Radio in the United States. It's four minutes long and you can listen to it at NPR's Internet site here:

A long essay Steil wrote for the May/June issue of Foreign Affairs, "The End of National Currency," can be found at that magazine's site here:
