Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Interviewed this week by Chris Waltzek of GoldSeek Radio, former U.S. Assistant Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts says he believes the Federal Reserve is surreptitiously shorting gold to support the dollar in the Fed's low-interest-rate environment, which ordinarily would weaken the currency. The interview is 29 minutes long and Roberts' comments about gold begin at about the 17-minute mark. You can listen to it at GoldSeek Radio here:

from the Sprott Precious Metals Round Table

Now you don't have to travel to attend a financial conference to hear Sprott Asset Management's precious metals experts -- Eric Sprott, Rick Rule, and John Embry. They held a round-table discussion on February 12 and you can watch it on the Internet. Among their topics:

-- Why are precious metals such a compelling investment opportunity?

-- Why are non-G7 central banks buying gold? Do Western central banks have any left?

-- Why are investors buying as much silver as gold in dollar terms? What does this mean for the price of silver?

-- Is the growing supply deficit of platinum and palladium going to push their prices higher?
