Max Keiser - "Brown's Bottom" - (Documentary)

Max Keiser's short film about Brown's Bottom, the legendary seeming-monetary-gaff where in 1997 Gordon Brown the then chancellor to Tony Blair sold off half the UK's gold at 'rock bottom prices'. What do I mean by rock bottom? Well, we all know gold's around about $1,000 per ounce today - Brown shifted his at $250.

There's a very interesting 'denouement' with Keiser refused an interview at the Bundesbank in Berlin which was ON LOCKDOWN due to some Bernanke-blamed crisis.

"All the gold in Germany ... is in New York." quips Keiser as he gets back in his taxi.
