Germany has asked for ½ of its physical gold currently held for the past 50 years in a vault in the USA, to be sent back to Germany.
That is 54,000 gold bars. Germany does not feel safe leaving the physical gold in USA.
Hollywood can make a movie about this being robbed while being transported from USA to Frankfurt, Germany.
Italy still has so much more gold than China. The EU should not bail out Italy. It is like a tycoon asking you to donate money to him.
