On this, the 40th anniversary of the Nixon Shock, you will probably see the video below of Nixon closing the gold window at some of your favorite sites. Most will call it a crime for the purpose of promoting their expectation of justice defined as turning back the clock to the old gold standard. But it may be more instructive to think about this momentous occasion, 40 years ago today, as one of the many necessaryyet painfulsteps on the long road to Freegold. So I thought I'd present this same video in a more appropriate context.

Please take the time to understand FOFOA's dilemma if you'd like to grasp the importance and significance of the long-line Trail exhibited below:

FOFOA's dilemma: When a single medium is used as both store of value and medium of exchange it leads to a conflict between debtors and savers. FOFOA's dilemma holds true for both gold and fiat, the solution being Freegold, which incidentally also resolves Triffin's dilemma.
