Gold: The Most Seductive Metal

Listen
AIR DATE: December 16, 2013

Author Matthew Hart says we're on the edge of the greatest gold boom ever. There is more demand for jewelry as well as the speculative market that ironically is seeking to maintain wealth in uncertain economic times. His new book chronicles the race for gold in Asia, Africa and the Americas. And he shows how it has become integral to the world financial system since the start of the 19th century. And he traces the unlikely origins of the gold industry in Nevada.
