The man behind the curtain
In a real case of ‘the emperor has no clothes’ it has been discovered that the Reserve bank of Australia has only a tiny fraction of its gold reserves in Australia.

If you found a lost gold earring lately you just found more than your share of the material value of what backs the Australian dollar.
Looking for earrings in the gutter just became a viable career.
