A gold standard would result in exponential deflation, and the collapse of capitalism. Inflation is necessary for the capitalist mode of production to remain feasible and optimal, and I do not understand criticisms of the existence of inflation.

It's because of Jews that Switzerland switched to fiat currency?

So, what...the financial damages the WJC sought were so extreme it severely depleted Switzerland's gold supply or something?
The Swiss franc has historically been considered a safe haven currency with virtually zero inflation and a legal requirement that a minimum of 40% be backed by gold reserves. However, this link to gold, which dates from the 1920s, was terminated on 1 May 2000 following a referendum regarding the Nazi gold affair with Swiss banks and an amendment to the Swiss Constitution. By March 2005, following a gold selling program, the Swiss National Bank held 1,290 tonnes of gold in reserves which equated to 20% of its assets.
It seems to vary from case-to-case. Sometimes Washington wants a weaker currency, sometimes stronger.
