Brattle Principal Dr. Rosa Abrantes-Metz was a guest on a recent episode of BBC’s “The Compass” podcast. She was featured in “Gold: What Does the Future Hold?” the last of three episodes of the podcast’s “The Golden Age of Gold” miniseries exploring the past, present, and future of gold – and society’s obsession with it.

Dr. Abrantes-Metz spoke with host Rajvi Vora about the pricing systems in place for gold and how they have changed since 2016. She also discussed the growth of the derivatives market and how the structure for gold fixing was, in the past, particularly prime for abuse.
