The Selling of Central Bank Gold

Gold barsOver at his Telegraph blog, Thomas Pascoe ponders the selling of British government gold reserves (H/T: Lew Rockwell).

The central bank of Norway, Norges Bank, sold off its remaining reserves in the first quarter of 2004, save some gold for exhibition purposes and of “historical value,” as the bank says in its FAQ on gold.
