Podcast interview: Financial journalist Lars Schall talked with highly respected Singapore-based fund manager Grant Williams about, inter alia: the philosophy of gold and money; gold as “power money”; the bad effects of central bank interventions; the Swiss Goldinitiative; and the question whether gold will become the ultimate bubble in the future after the bubbles in bonds and equities will have popped.
