Maybe so, but then GATA's work has documented that markets in the United States may be just as much as subject to government meddling as China's, from surreptitious government interventions in the gold futures market to the markets for all financial and commodity futures operated by CME Group:

Sharma's commentary is misleading when The New York Times and Morgan Stanley Investment Management refuse to acknowledge and report that meddling.

Sharma's commentary is headlined "Which Nation Does the World Trust Most? (Hint: Follow the Dollar)" and it's posted here:
