"A Shift Towards a Gold Standard"?

•, by Bryant Brown
In early August, the FDIC1 and the Fed2 issued a "Notice of Proposed Rulemaking" stating that it intends to adopt the Basel III3 capital requirements. The document is 250 pages long and is available on line;
It is important to analyze the potential implications of this document. Previous actions of the Basel Committee have had significant impact.
One commentator summarized this pending rule change this way; 'If this new rule is adopted as proposed, gold would shift... by the year 2015... (to) eventually place gold at the heart of global currency and payment systems -- seemingly a shift back towards a gold standard. This action is a strong confirmation that gold's primary trend will likely continue.'
