The golden age of our times is the age of gold

Rob Kirby , 05/28/2014 :
“We are seeing cracks in the trust that, five years ago, there was no questioning the ownership or custody of sovereign metals stored at the Bank of England or the U.S. Federal Reserve; and, now, we’re seeing countries are questioning and want reassurances. There’s been a breakdown in trust (between central banks). . . This is now a distinct pattern, and I expect it will accelerate as time goes on.”
