Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Stockhouse columnist and Ticker Trax editor Thom Calandra reports tonight that the other day he bought some one-ounce gold bullion coins for $50 above the spot price -- and he wonders why the coin dealers accepted dollars at all. Calandra's commentary is headlined "Eight People to Save the World" and you can find it at Stockhouse here:
