the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) has been accepting gold like a “pawn shop” for central banks, but the BIS has since changed its tune.

Sure, anything’s possible… yet this version of events seems unlikely, and we’ll explain why below. For reference, the gold holdings-related content in question comes from page 171 of the June 2010 BIS Annual Report : “Included in ‘Gold bars held at central banks’ is SDR 8,160.1 million (346 tonnes) (2009: ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Out of respect for Philip M. McKenna, the founder and president of the Gold Standard League, I am going to emphasize gold in the title of my lecture.
