Swiss vote on central bank gold could limit manipulation

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA Chairman Bill Murphy and your secretary/treasurer are quoted tonight in a report by Alex Newman in The New American magazine about Switzerland's forthcoming referendum on repatriating the country's gold reserves and converting 20 percent of the country's foreign exchange reserves into gold. The report is headlined "Swiss Vote on Central Bank Gold Could Limit Manipulation" and it's posted at The New American here:

Yes, The New American is the organ of the John Birch Society, which Wikipedia says is considered extremist for supporting limited government and opposing communism:

Since GATA not only supports limited government and opposes communism but also advocates accountability for government officials, transparency for government operations, and free markets, God only knows how unattractively we can be characterized. But as Murphy played professional football 46 years ago and as your secretary/treasurer met President Jimmy Carter at the White House 36 years ago, we have learned how to live a lot down.

Besides, Murphy and your secretary/treasurer will talk to just about anyone who will listen about manipulation of the gold market -- even to The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times, should they ever get serious about journalism and restoring free markets to Western civilization.

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc.
