The Fed's Legacy

Study the nearby graph.  Any obvious conclusion jump out at you?

Students of history will recall events of 1913 and 1971.  In 1913, Congress created the Creature from Jekyll Island --- the Fed.  In 1971, President Nixon ended American subscription to the Bretton Woods gold standard system.  Probably just a coincidence, right?
