Episode 130: Alasdair Macleod talks with Chris Powell from GATA (The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee). Fascinating from the get go, Chris details how he became involved in the founding of GATA all those years ago back in 1999.
Well known in the gold circles, Chris has tirelessly fought against the collusion to control the price and supply of gold and is widely admired for his erudition in this matter and the time he dedicates to GATA, a non profit organisation, which pursues justice and free financial markets.
Alasdair enquires as why the evidence of this collusion that GATA has obtained over the years never seems to be mentioned or investigated by mainstream financial writers who still remain somewhat reticent to the GATA case.
Chris elaborates on the treatment of the media, the last few years’ relationship with the US regulators, whom have heard the arguments of GATA, before moving onto the recent downward price moves.
