Dude, you are 100 percent WRONG!!!!! Our monetary system wasn't fiat based in 1933. The people were forced to turn in a real specie in the form of gold which has an intrinsic value in return for paper notes of debt. A dollar is actually a unit of measurement as in so many grains of gold, silver or a combination of both. Remember when coinage was made of real silver? The Weimar Republic's printing of too much of their currency was after WWI. You are factually deficient but I have GIVEN you the historical documents....they are not MY words, my thoughts or opinions. If you understand even basic English, it's all right there.
