Gold's rise is a 'mystery' because journalism always fails to pursue it

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Thanks to Stephen Gandel at CBS News' Moneywatch bureau for inadvertently illustrating today the greatest power of governments and central banks in the financial markets.

Gandel's commentary is headlined: "Gold Prices Hit All-Time High, and It's a Bit of a Mystery Why."

... For the remainder of the report:


USAGold: Coins and bullion since 1973

USAGold, well known for its Internet site,, offers contemporary bullion coins and bullion-related historic gold coins for delivery to private investors in the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. It is one of the oldest and most respected names in the gold industry, with thousands of clients and an approach to investment that emphasizes guidance and individual needs over high-pressure sales tactics. The firm's zero-complaint record at the Better Business Bureau makes it an ideal match for the conservative, long-term investor looking for a reliable contact in the gold business.

Please call 1-800-869-5115x100 and ask for the trading desk, or visit:

USAGold: Great prices, quick delivery -- all the time.

Gandel writes: "Gold is usually seen as a safe haven when stocks are falling or when inflation is rising. Neither of those two things are happening right now."

Apparently Gandel hasn't done any grocery shopping lately, or paid any taxes or medical insurance bills. Apparently he believes government consumer price data when some ordinary journalist would disprove it.

But more than that, no mainstream news organization will report the longstanding Western government policy of surreptitious intervention in the gold market using the fractional-reserve gold banking system, which is based on derivatives and futures-market manipulation. That system created a vast amount of imaginary gold, delivery demands for which now are causing the system to implode and the metal's price to rise sharply in what seems like a classic short squeeze.

It has been documented by GATA for many years. It is summarized here --

-- and detailed fully here:

The documentation has been provided constantly to major financial news organizations but almost always ignored, being considered a national security issue.

Has CBS News ever put a critical question to a central bank? Has any mainstream financial news organization ever done that?

If mainstream financial news organizations ever attempted journalism in regard to the gold market, central bank policy based on deception would fail instantly.

Thus the greatest power of central banking is not the power of infinite money creation. It is central banking's exemption from journalism.
