The Fate of the Dollar, 50 Years After Nixon Let It Float

January 25, 2022; 12:00 PM-1:00 PM EST

President Richard Nixon’s decision to delink the dollar from gold - announced without warning in August 1971 - remade the global monetary system in an instant. Join us for a special virtual discussion, lead by Jeffrey Garten, dean emeritus of the Yale School of Management and author of Three Days at Camp David: How a Secret Meeting in 1971 Transformed the Global Economy,  as he explains why three dramatic days a half-century ago have important implications for today’s global economy. 

In a wide-ranging discussion with journalist and author James Surowiecki, Professor Garten will recount some of the most relevant and surprising highlights from his years of historical research and interviews with key figures of the time, and illuminate how they continue to reverberate today.
