The Gold ATM Index

This morning, David Brancaccio reported on consumer confidence in Egypt, as well as in the region at large.

He mentioned the Gold-To-Go ATM in Abu Dhabi at the Emirates Palace Hotel, pictured at left. The ATMs were introduced last year and have been doing well, thank you very much.

The German company, Ex Oriente Lux AG, has expanded their reach with ATMs in the UAE as well as in Italy, Germany and as of earlier this year, the U.S. In Vegas, of course.

Because I mean really, what spells confidence like get-it-to-go gold? Whether or not that confidence is deserved is a different question entirely.
