Interesting look at long term Dow but using the Gold Standard as a dividing line.

To be blunt, I am really not sure what to make of it. Was going off of the Gold Standard inevitable, and therefore unimportant? Or was the shift away from Gold the start of an era of great inflation? Or some combination of the two?
