“For centuries governments and currencies have been underpinned by gold. Countries and individuals measured their wealth in gold. The western United States of America, South Africa and much of Australia, to name only a few examples, owed their development and much of their prosperity to the discovery and mining of gold.
Today many financiers would have us believe that gold is simply another commodity, that it no longer can be regarded as a store of wealth. Ferdinand Lips in his book, aptly named Gold Wars, demonstrates that this concept is not only fallacious, but also dangerous.
Countries have been, and are being, built on the back of gold mining certain international and governmental agencies seek to control gold and its price for their own ends. Gold Wars shows why they should not succeed and what the consequences will be if they do.
This book is required reading for anyone interested in monetary stability.”
