Okay, he’d have to hype up the action, disguise the identity of the bank, invent a lot of it – but the core, the market manipulation, he could expose in detail.
BOZEMAN, Mont. (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
In “Bullion” and “Oro En Lingotes” (published by iUniverse), the new autobiographical novel written in both English and Spanish by John Goldsmith and Donald Ray Bernard, readers uncover an insightful, firsthand perspective of shady dealings in the international gold market.
It was probably the greatest private hoard of gold in the world, which the American underworld had accepted as collateral for a loan that was in default. Two men were separately commissioned to secretly sell the gold to private investors to avoid a crisis on the world gold market. They found themselves in competition with a major international bank which saw an opportunity to manipulate the market fix of the century: the Gold Rush of 1979. The price of gold doubled in less than three weeks, an event as sensational as the Wall Street Crash.
According to Goldsmith, Bernard lived most of the events that happen in the books. “We could hire some writer to turn the story into a novel,” the main characters write in the epilogue. “Okay, he’d have to hype up the action, disguise the identity of the bank, invent a lot of it – but the core, the market manipulation, he could expose in detail.”
