Thomas W. Zeiler, David Leblang

Join us as professor Tom Zeiler discusses how the Nixon presidency affected American global economic leadership. For decades after World War II, the Bretton Woods system governed global monetary relations. In 1971, President Nixon removed the dollar from the gold standard, effectively ending the Bretton Woods system. This talk will be moderated by David Leblang, the J. Wilson Newman Professor of Governance at the Miller Center and professor politics and public policy at UVA.
