Economics and Investing:

K.P. suggested this piece at Zero Hedge: Germany to Review Bundesbank Gold Reserves in Frankfurt, Paris, London and New York Fed. Here is a brief quote: "The concern is that were the eurozone to collapse, Bundesbank's losses could be half a trillion euros - more than one-and-a-half times the size of the Germany's annual budget. In that scenario, Germany’s national patrimony of gold bullion reserves would be needed to support the currency – whether that be a new euro or a return to the Deutsche mark." (When the going gets tough, they will repatriate their gold. Count on it.)

Zero Hedge also reports: Switzerland Wants Its Gold Back From The New York Fed. To quote Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll): This is looking "curiouser and curiouser..."

The BBC says: Security: UK 'must plan for euro collapse'. (Thanks to Andrew in England for the link.)
