Wall St. For Main St., Released on 6/28/23

During this 40+ minute interview, Jason asks Chris Powell about how governments and central banks have become increasingly more active in “markets” since the 2008 financial crisis including how central banks get a volume trading discount from the CME Group. Chris talks about the evidence at the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) of central banks and bullion banks using gold leases, gold swaps and other OTC derivatives to control paper gold prices. GATA has also sued the Federal Reserve Bank multiple times over the last 2 plus decades so Jason asks Chris if GATA learned anything interesting from the lawsuits.
