Comment: Is it true that Alan Greenspan requires that his speaking
engagement fees be paid in gold rather than U.S. currency? Lots of people
in our area (southern Oregon) are talking about this.

I never heard of this myself bt I dont understand why anybody would want to be paid in gold when that would be more of a convenence to get a check.

I would think that would limit his potential audince signifigantly to facilities that can abotain gold.
This site was the first link that made any mention of the rumor, but everybody that replied didnt put much stock into its plausibility.
