Deep thoughts on inflation

It's an excellent question. Is that the fate of the proletariat? Truly, we should muster our strength and shout for the voices that are not heard.

Way better than Krugman.

Shit, I think the Democrats just found a new theme song.

And I'm jealous!

I think 1984’s brief discussion of the proletariat shall suffice. They will always live paycheck to paycheck regardless of monetary hijinks.

Buy Bitcoin. I think crypto-currency could be the hole in the dike. No more currency manipulation with a publicly transparent, cryptographically verified and protected blockchain. And it is deflationary, so value will only increase until it hits equilibrium.

Greater than 2 standard deviation communication gap manifesting itself again?

Are you aware that the over-computered intelligence agencies are already, and have been for some time, devoting huge computing resources to crypto-mining? The. Currency will be manipulated as much as they like.

Inflation in Japan is near zero.

I don't think those girls are actual economists at all.

Blogger Silly but True December 19, 2017 6:24 PM  

The reality of the public transparency is what 51% of the blockchain says it is. You don't think the governments that hacked the centrifuge controllers on a non-internet-connected top secret black site or can read your hard drive contents and transmit data through your computer's speakers or EM signature haven't found a way to manipulate the blockchain code?

@12 Quantum computers are now, or will be in 3 months, powerful enough to break most public key encryption, but measures have already been put in place to make this meaningless. Hashing algorithms are still safe from quantum breakage. If you see the Satoshi Hoard start moving, it means quantum power got into the hands of the second tier, like the big universities, etc.

Anonymous Mycroft Jones December 19, 2017 6:39 PM  

As for blockchain manipulation due to massive amounts of compute power, the nature of the blockchain makes it government against government, instead of one government controlling the currency. Blockchain was designed to be Sisyphean, even for governments. I know the NSA has a lot of compute power to throw at the blockchain, but I'd be more concerned about China.

I still can't tell if Vox or Nate won the closing argument, but you both looked fabulous.

Inflation is 0% in Japan, I wonder if they exclude energy and food as well? No inflation in Energy prices while all the reactors are shut down, I'm not buying it.

Blogger weka December 19, 2017 7:45 PM  

@Dan. Even with increasing energy prices inflation would be zero. Because a declining population usually leads to deflation: less people chasing the same production of goods.

But Vox, think about your credibility! I'm very concerned at your recent posts, very concerned.

Your naive trusting nature is supposed to make you cute, but you're coming across as stupid.

If you see big blocky golden hiragana/katakana/kanji, that's a seizure warning in all languages.

Oh, fiddlesticks. Practical quantum computers do not exist today, and have been receding into the future for a couple of decades now, along with home fusion generators.

Sure there are some prototypes, but nothing you could do useful work with. The hype is so thick that Microsoft has actually released a quantum computing programming language, Q#...that cannot be used to do real work because real quantum computers do not exist. It's really good for getting government grants, I bet, and pretending that you are doing actual "research". Almost as good a dodge as AI.

Blogger Azure Amaranthine December 19, 2017 10:08 PM  

"Almost as good a dodge as AI."

Yeah, "We will create god in our own image." is pretty hard to match up to.

+1 for use of "muster" as a song lyric.

A flea-infested dog vomiting in your lap is better than Krugman.

The vomiting dog doesn't encourage Washington D.C. politicians to sabotage our economy, and therefore, your long-term financial well-being.

Blogger Akulkis December 20, 2017 12:17 AM  

Quantum computing is a pipe dream. It's all based on instability, which is the exact opposite of computing.

Would you balance your check-book using Monte-Carlo computing techniques?

Also, since quantum computing is close to random-numberizing, it can only work for problems which require finding local minima or Maxima, with continuous approaches from each side.

1 wrong bit in the key for a hash-type encryption looks just as wrong in which 50% of your bits are wrong.

Anonymous aeou December 20, 2017 2:38 AM  

In my mind the continued legal existence of bitcoin implies that NSA can own it. Remember the early 2000's, when the feds came down hard and fast on e-gold and the like?

if by "computer" you mean a flip-flop, yes.

An unstable flip-flop.... which is, seriously... just a random bit generator.

Right, you've shared one of your favourite things ...

Now try one of mine: play the Youtube video for "Vertä ja Lihää" by Turmion Kätilöt.

Have fun. :-)
