GATA processa FED

Para terminar o ano a GATA processou esta semana a reserva federal dos EUA. Isto está relacionado com os Gold Swaps feitos pelo FED que podem estar a ser utilizados para manipular o preço do ouro.

The lawsuit follows two years of GATA's efforts to obtain from the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury Department a candid accounting of the U.S. government's involvement in the gold market. These efforts parallel those of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, who long has been proposing legislation to audit the Fed. The Fed has been criticized for secrecy in its massive intervention in the markets over the last year, and Paul's legislation recently was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives.

In correspondence with GATA's lawyers, the Fed has claimed that its gold swap records involve "trade secrets" exempt from disclosure under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.

Boas entradas em 2010.
