LONDON — Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Monday the financial crisis must not be an excuse to retreat into protectionism and instead be viewed as
the "difficult birth-pangs of a new global order".
In a speech, he will urge countries to avoid "muddling through as pessimists" and "make the necessary adjustment to a better future and setting the
new rules for this new global order", according to his office.
I think it was China. I'm not sure but I remember reading that China bought an abundance of it with US dollars both from us and the UK. It was a
hedge against what has happened now with the US currency. They saw the devaluation and sought to protect their investmenst. It was pretty dumb of
Brown to sell your gold. It isn't like you folks can dig up more like we still can!
