Sometimes politicians trick people, but do they think of consequences of their actions or explain to people what they have done? People always seem to realize sooner or later what has been done but what then for the future of their party or the personal future of the politician when the world figures out they have been tricked and the truth appears?


In this example our politician was lying to people in public and on air from the biggest economy in the world and the most famous politician.


This happened when President Nixon, on August 13 1971, suspended with certain exceptions, the convertibility of the dollar into gold after meeting with the Federal Reserve chairman Arthur Burns and Treasury Secretary John Connally at Camp David.
