THE GOLD STANDARD
Mr. BREWSTER. Mr. President, whenever the subject of the gold standard is raised as a topic of conversation, invariably a great deal of misinformation is presented.
The Washington Post on Sunday, December 3, 1967, published an article entitled, "It's Just a Lot of Bullion,"
by Mr. Harvey H. Segal, that clearly sets forth the facts concerning the value of gold
-> The idea of closing the Gold window was floating in 1967, implemented by Nixon in 71.
