What Nixon did concerning the Gold Standard was to stop a control over the amount of currency which could be printed without being backed by gold As recently as LBJ the requirement was only 4 times as much currency asvGold Reserves. This action was taken due to runs on the reserve banks demanding gold in lieu of currency if it was not available by foreign countries& financial institutions. On one hand it preserved our gold bullion stockpile by providing currency to pay demand notes but also allowed for inflation which of course manifested itself during the Carter administration.
The President which really impacted the Gold Standard demise was FDR when on 6/5/1933 he took the country off the Gold Standard when congress enacted a joint resolution nullifying the rights of creditors "Private Citizens" to demand payment in gold for their currency.

You can presume that my nickname is Pluto because I am hard to see with the naked eye. If I crashed into Uranus though, I'd make you squeal like the little tiny piglet that you are.

Obama zigger has him beat hands down. Eventually the truth will come out. Obama thinks he is king, not a president. Many thanks to the people with low IQs that voted for him.

No way. He was just the most inept. Clinton, Kennedy, Johnson all had more crap going on than Nixon. Nobody got killed, sorry, committed "suicide" during Nixon's term.

I suggest you do a little research as to the month & year the Clinton economic boom stated & what the status of what it was at the end of his Presidency .
Then I suggest you research what the economy was doing when George Bush took office , where it was 6 years after he was first elected , what happened after Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House & gave her speech about seeking higher taxes on business. Oh, also check out what happened to the stock market first when Obama was nominated & again when he was actually elected.
I could tell you but you would not believe m e& you would not learn anything.
