Federal Reserve Refuses to Provide Records of Foreign Gold Holdings

• Activist Post

The Federal Reserve's lack of transparency comes amidst reports that countries are removing their gold and other assets from the U.S. in the wake of the unprecedented Western sanctions imposed on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine. According to a 2023 Invesco survey, a "substantial percentage" of central banks expressed concern about how the U.S. and its allies froze nearly half of Russia's $650 billion gold and forex reserves.

Rep. Alex Mooney, R-W.Va., asked Powell about the matter in a December letter, only to have the Fed chair respond last month with evasive non-answers, telling him that the Federal Reserve does not own gold but holds it as a custodian for other entities—a fact that the congressman presumably already knew.
