Event description


Gold is an ancient asset but what role does it have in the modern world? Does it still have a role to play as an investment or a currency or should it now simply be used as jewellery? Why does it have the fascination it has for so many people? Why are central banks as a whole currently increasing their gold holdings? How do Isaac Newton and the Wizard of Oz come into gold's story? And why is it causing statistical headaches for the ONS?

Jill Leyland, who was Economic Adviser to the World Gold Council from 1999 to 2009 and is currently a member of the ONS Economic Experts Working Group, will explore all these issues (and more)......

Please note this event is for ONS staff only, any bookings made my non-ONS staff will be cancelled.
