Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
Gold researcher Koos Jansen tonight calls attention to the minutes of a U.S. State Department meeting in April 1974 summoned by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to consider the danger that the price of gold might get beyond the U.S. government’s control.
The objective of U.S. policy about gold during this time has not been secret; GATA has cited government records demonstrating it. For example:
But the minutes published by Jansen tonight are especially remarkable for making explicit the U.S. government’s recognition of what some gold advocates call “the golden rule” — that is, whoever has the most gold makes the rules.
