The Wall Street Journal just published the kind of article gold bugs dream of seeing in the mainstream press. Here’s an excerpt:

Credit Suisse Group AG, which has minted its own bars since 1856, told clients this week not to bother asking. In London, bankers are chartering private jets and trying to finagle military cargo planes to get their bullion to New York exchanges.
