Shit.  I had a really good talk on this, but I've lost it.  I think it was a French physicist.  He was talking about information storage systems, actually, and how they are evolving to become less deterministic, and sort of relating that to quantum mechanics.

On the other note: to me a simple answer to how much money is there could be: take a snapshot in time and account for  M1 +M2 + M3 (surly this will allow all loans to be offset with the resulting credits)  = money in said economy,  would that be correct,?

Yes (with the caveat above).  But it is impossible.  There is no record of all the loans in the world.

LOL wut?

Bitcoin is a 400 Megawatt waste of energy.

Do you even know what a Megawatt is?

He does not, probably, but I do: It is a measure of effect. You can convert it to horsepowers if you like. It is work (or energy) per time unit.



Then can you tell me how many Megawatts Bitcoin actually uses?

This could be a long-range weather forecast as well.   

Like this one?

TSR continues to predict the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season will see activity close to the long-term
 (1950-2011) norm. TSR reduces its forecast for US landfalling hurricane activity to 10% below-
       norm. The precision of TSR’s early August outlooks for Atlantic hurricane activity
                                   for the past decade is good.

Zero evidence except a story written on reddit.

...written a month before the hurricane.

So, you're saying that if the US government had a hurricane machine, other governments would pick a fight with them?

Sandy is short for Cassandra, the Greek mythological figure who epitomizes tragedy. The gods gave Cassandra the gift of prophecy; depending on which version of the story one prefers, she could either see or smell the future. But with this gift also came a curse: Cassandra’s warnings about future disasters were fated to be ignored.

I haven't read this thread but since we're on the topic, has anyone touched on whether it's prudent to let women or Asians drive?

Speaking of economics and cliffs, this seems relevant:

LOL, I think I'm going to have to take credit for this.  In return, at least, I did learn about Physiocracy.

There's no telling why Krugman missed this.  I don't think he's an actual idiot.  I think he's mostly just a political shill.

Either way, it's not really surprising to me.  Economists don't seem to have the slightest clue about the real world.  Here's a perfect example, from an argument I had several years back with a couple of economists on YouTube.  I just happened to stumble upon it, looking for some of my recent posts on the obsolescence of human labor:

Quote

Yes, that is a real life economist.  And, yes, he thinks that matter and energy cannot be depleted.  Do you see just how screwed we all are?

America, you have now gone over the fiscal cliff. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. All retweets are now considered endorsements. The price of milk is now $170 a litre – yes, a litre, because everything is now METRIC.

I can live with this.

I wonder, can the Bitcoin community convince people like Mark that Bitcoin offers a solution to re-connecting economics and the environment without having to forage berries and wipe your butt with leaves?
738  Economy / Economics / Re: Inflation that's equally distributed. on: January 01, 2013, 04:20:50 AM
There is no way this can actually exist in reality.  Defining "people of a country" and distributing anything evenly is doomed to failure.
