|When we started reading the LA Times article reporting that 'the federal government has quietly been completing an audit of U.S. gold stored at the New York Fed' we couldn't help but wonder when the gotcha moment would appear. 'The calls for audits are saying, 'We don't trust the government for the last 200 years,'' said Ted Truman, a former assistant Treasury secretary and Fed official. In a nutshell, the irony of the Treasury auditing the fed is like asking Libor Trade A to confirm that Libor Trader B was not only 'fixing' the Libor rate correctly and accurately, but that there is no champagne involved for anyone who could misrepresent it the best within the cabal of manipulation in which the Nash Equilibrium was for everyone to commit fraud.|
