Bill Murphy, chairman of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA), has an extensive commodities and futures background with some of the world’s most well-known Wall Street firms. However, those firms probably wish they’d never heard of him. That’s because GATA has since compiled a vast body of evidence implicating some of them in what he says is a scheme to manipulate the price of gold and silver. GATA has held four international conferences, the most recent being held in August of 2011 at The Savoy Hotel in London, with 400 attending from 38 countries. Bill is a graduate of the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University and was a starting wide receiver for the Boston Patriots in 1968.
