Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA again will have a big part in the New Orleans Investment Conference this year, what with GATA Chairman Bill Murphy and your secretary/treasurer making presentations, your secretary/treasurer debating Casey Research founder Doug Casey about whether the gold market is manipulated, and former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan not only speaking but taking questions from the audience.

Conference sponsor Brien Lundin of Gold Newsletter and the Jefferson Companies in Louisiana is asking for help in devising questions for Greenspan, and GATA has appended his appeal.

What Are Your Questions for Alan Greenspan in New Orleans?

By Brien Lundin

Excitement is building for our 40th anniversary New Orleans Investment Conference, featuring unprecedented insight into the workings of the Federal Reserve by Alan Greenspan.

Why do I say unprecedented?

Well, first, because I'm going to make it so. Never before has Greenspan agreed to be quizzed by an audience of individual investors. And I'm going to make sure that we pull no punches in exploring how a well-known and eloquent advocate for gold and against planned economies ended up pulling the levers controlling the world's largest economy.

And if I have anything to say about it, we're going to find out -- once and for all -- if central banks are manipulating the gold market, and how.

Moreover, we're going to get Greenspan's honest, unhedged prediction of how (and if) the Fed can exit its "quantitative easing" experiment; what the repercussions will be; and where the economy is heading as a result.

Second, at this point in his life, Greenspan doesn't have any reason to be less than frank and forthright -- especially in this venue.

As you may know, long before he ascended to the chairmanship of the Fed, Greenspan was a speaker at our event -- invited because of his reputation as one of the foremost gold bugs. And in congressional testimony during his tenure as Fed chairman, he always defended gold as the "currency of last resort."

In fact, in a private conversation with Jim Blanchard while he was in office, Greenspan confessed his belief that his writings on gold were "the best things I ever wrote."

So I'm confident that Greenspan's face-to-face question-and-answer period with our audience will make headlines if not history.

And you can bet that his panel with Marc Faber and Porter Stansberry will be a fireworks show that people will be talking about for years.

Few investors will be able to say they were there. Will you be there?

If so, then you'll also witness one of the most exciting and entertaining debates you've ever seen, as Doug Casey (libertarian) takes on Charles Krauthammer (conservative). No rhetorical punches will be pulled.

You'll also enjoy dynamic individual presentations by Krauthammer, Stansberry, Casey, and Faber, as well as Peter Schiff, Rick Rule, Robert Prechter, Frank Holmes, Mark Skousen, Mary Anne and Pam Aden, Adrian Day, Brent Cook, Matthew Badiali, Nick Hodge, Ian McAvity, Eric Coffin, Chris Powell, Bill Murphy, Thom Calandra, Scott Gibson, and more.

Throw in our spectacular opening and closing receptions (including a very special retrospective panel) and other celebrations throughout the event, and this is an event that you cannot afford to miss.

In fact, with our ironclad “Quadruple Your Money Guarantee” you can't lose: We will refund your entire registration fee if you find the conference doesn't provide profits more than quadruple your registration fee over the first six months following the event.

No risk but huge potential rewards -- just the kind of investment you need in today's uncertain times.

Plus, you'll save up to $400 by registering now -- and guarantee your place in our convenient host hotel. (Our room block will close soon.)
