James Turk: An overview of gold's supply and demand

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GoldMoney founder James Turk, editor of the Freemarket Gold & Money Report and consultant to GATA, argues in a new essay that gold is a hugely misunderstood asset -- and no better understood because of the World Gold Council, whose main purpose long has seemed to GATA to be to make sure that there never is a world gold council.

Confusion about gold arises, Turk writes, "because so many people -- including many people within the gold industry -- refuse to acknowledge that gold is money. They attempt to analyze gold as if it was a mere commodity with some jewelry fabrication and unimportant industrial application instead of what it really is -- money."

Turk's essay is headlined "An Overview of Gold's Supply and Demand" and you can find it at Kitco here:
