How much would gold be manipulated if the US or BRICs went on a gold standard?
The gold market is small relative to many other assets and mostly tightly held (central banks) making it relatively illiquid. Some folk already believe gold is highly manipulated, but suppose the US, or BRICS, went on gold standard, couldn't/wouldn't that open the door for manipulation either by other cental banks that.may want to destroy anothers' economy or by deep pocketed political adversaries, or even by a bunch or wealthy malcontents?
