[…] Since 1999 the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee has been trying to get the financial industry, the mining industry, and mainstream financial news organizations to acknowledge that the gold market is aggressively manipulated by governments and central banks to protect their currencies and bonds against competition from a potentially superior currency and store of value. This year seems to have been the one when respectable people in the financial industry gave up disputing us.
Not that GATA still isn’t disparaged. Rather, respectable people in the financial industry have gone from denying that the gold market is manipulated to dismissing complaints of gold market manipulation because, they say, “All markets are manipulated.”
