Vooral leuk was het bijbehorende plaatje dat we hier voor u reproduceren.
Het artikel zelf bespreekt wat er tot nu toe gebeurd is, echter op een erg overtrokken wijze. Maar daarom ook wel leuk!
Ze schrijven bvb dat de regering onder “enorme druk” staat!!!
Wel, dat zouden we wensen, maar zover is het nog lang niet. Wat niet is, kan natuurlijk wel komen!
Dat hangt onder andere ook af hoeveel druk ieder van ons kan/wil zetten. Zie de petitie.
Een zee van veel objectieve gegevens over goud vindt u hier.

Pressure mounts on Netherlands to bring back gold from abroad
The total amount of gold that the Netherlands holds is also a state secret as nobody knows the exact figure, even the amount of gold maintained in the vaults of the DNB headquarters in Amsterdam
AMSTERDAM(BullionStreet): The Netherlands government are under immense pressure from its people and opposition to bring its gold back from overseas.
Opposition parties asked the government to start the repatriation of its gold reserves from the US as well as from Great Britain and Canada.
The move gained momentum after many experts said the US government has the power to confiscate whatever foreign gold reserves it holds in the event global interest on the dollar decelerated.
Netherlands central bank (DNB) also confirmed a report that nearly ninety percent of its gold are held abroad, especially in the US.
According to Klaas Knot, President of the DNB, the gold is fine where it is. Much of that figure is placed in vaults in New York City, without identifying names of banks or institutions.
The total amount of gold that the Netherlands holds is also a state secret as nobody knows the exact figure, even the amount of gold maintained in the vaults of the DNB headquarters in Amsterdam.
Knot, however said the DNB headquarters alone holds about 67 tonnes worth of gold, amounting to about three billion euros.
The world’s central banks have been buying and holding gold acquisitions to maintain, ensure and protect a well-diversified foreign-exchange portfolio that is less dependent on the American dollar.
