The video discusses the rationale for the Fed’s actions during each of these periods.

It describes the developments that made it impossible for the Fed to continue backing Dollars with Gold after 1968.

And it illustrates the mind-boggling expansion of the Fed’s power once it was free to create as much money as it pleased.  For instance, in 1971, the year the Bretton Woods International Monetary System collapsed, the Fed created $9 billion.  In 2020, the Fed created $3.2 trillion, 356 times more than in 1971.
