Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

While 2013 has been a disappointing year for gold and silver, in an interview today with King World News GoldMoney founder and GATA consultant James Turk tries to put it in context. The monetary metals have had many years of increases against one bad year, he notes, and metal in hand still has no counterparty risk even as counterparty risk is growing throughout the world. An excerpt from the interview is posted at the King World News blog here:

Turk elaborates on counterparty risk in his new book written with John Rubino, "The Money Bubble." Introducing the book in an essay at GoldMoney's Internet site, Turk elaborates on this point. Payment in gold concludes a transaction, he writes, while payment in government currency is actually acceptance of a central bank's promise to pay, the liability of a central bank.

Turk's commentary about his new book is headlined "James Turk Launches New Book -- 'The Money Bubble: What to Do Before It Pops'" and it's posted at GoldMoney's Internet site here:
