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 (http://www.gata.org/node/4692 [1]), 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:
