World Bank President Zoellick Gift Wraps Gold $1400+

'Tis soon to be the season of giving, and the monetary gifts to gold owners are getting off to an early start.

Not to be outdone by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's recent 'QE2' goody bag, World Bank President Robert Zoellick has penned an editorial in the Financial Times calling for a global monetary debate on returning to a gold standard of sorts.

Zoellick's proposal is for a basket of the world's leading currencies - the dollar, euro, yen, pound, and renminbi - to be paired with gold (which he describes as "an international reference point of market expectations") in a new Bretton Woods styled monetary order.

Gold really didn't need much of a reason to finally poke its head above $1400/oz, but Zoellick's op-ed and the gold chatter that's sure to follow will almost certainly provide the nudge.

Meantime gold owners can sit back, grab a bag of popcorn, and enjoy what's about to happen to the price of your Au.
