When someone is “holding on to” your gold for you, it is best to get it back
On Friday, Gov. Greg Abbott signed legislation that will create a state-run gold depository in the Lone Star State â€“ one that will attempt to rival those operated by the U.S. government inside Fort Knox and the Federal Reserve Bank of New Yorkâ€™s vault in lower Manhattan. â€œThe Texas Bullion Depository,â€ Abbott said in a statement, â€œwill become the first state-level facility of its kind in the nation, increasing the security and stability of our gold reserves and keeping taxpayer funds from leaving Texas to pay for fees to store gold in facilities outside our state.â€ Soon, Abbottâ€™s office said, the state â€œwill repatriate $1 billion of gold bullion from the Federal Reserve in New York to Texas.â€
Please don’t let this be a joke.
