Chan Akya: No country for gold men

Section: Daily Dispatches

11p ET Sunday, November 15, 2009

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

A seemingly pseudonymous columnist for the Asia Times in Hong Kong, Chan Akya, remarks in a column about gold published yesterday that one of the risks of investing in gold is "the relative ease with which the physical market for the commodity can be manipulated." One wonders where he got that idea. Surely not from the Financial Times or The New York Times or even, sadly, The Telegraph. But at least the thought can make the public prints in Asia. Akya's column is headlined "No Country for Gold Men" and you can find it at the Asia Times Internet site here:
