Well, here we go...we're probably going to hear bitcoin mentioned on major US news programs this week.  Buckle up everybody, this is probably going to be a bumpy ride.

Holy...cow!  Shocked

As long as we are still leaving the planet in better shape for the next generation than we found it
We are? Shocked

Considering the millions of hectares of forest lost each year, extinguishing species, overfishing, etc, I wouldn't say so.

Destruction of forest, extinguishing species, overfishing is a result of the inability to own these resources, not resource scarcity.

In any case, if we ever figure out how to mine asteroid...a single asteroid will be more than all the building, electronics, roads, and all the other material things that's made out of lead, steel, silicon, gold, etc, combined. Gold will cease to be the storage of wealth.

Assuming our population don't grow like rabbits and our hunger for resources don't grow like rabbits, it might be the all things that we will ever need for building anything.

The next question is how do we get enough energy? Do we get it from nuclear power on earth or absorb energy from the sun?

I am not a marxist or an austrian, I think they are both absurd.

I know that you think they are absurd. I am not interested in what you think. I am more interested in if you can justify it.

One could even show the "price" in the number of hours of work instead: how much time would you have to spend at your data entry job to pay for this sofa?  After all, that's the real price of something, how much time you had to spend at work to afford it.

LOL labor theory of value.

Marxist theory is just as sensible as most of the Austrian theory that people on this forum seem to love.

Be willing to defend your assertion, both your marxist theory is stupid and Austrian theory is stupid.

I think this paradigm is a remnant of older ages, when the spanish, portugese, british and whoever where in the process of colonializing the world and a little younger times, when nation-state's economies started competing on a global scale.

Taking a global view, an ever-growing economy cannot work in the long run because of earth's limited resources. I actually think we (at least the "western" people) should scale our consumption (and therefore our non-exporting economies?) down. I think if we don't, this will bite us in the ass big time some day. Also: we are still to a certain extent a role-model for people in developing countries... imagine all the world having energy and resource consumption of a US citizen => doesn't work.

The earth give us more energy in one hour than the whole of humanity use in one year. Plus, humanity is becoming more energy efficient over time. The western lifestyle is already transforming into an information lifestyle, rather than a materialistic lifestyle. We will collectively realize that things...are just things. Useful, sometime...but they're just that..things.

Do we really need all the consumer products we buy en masse each day and throw away the next? Does it make us happier? I'm seeing many articles about studies suggesting otherwise.
We provide and consume information. The rest are just support system for our bodies.

Happiness is just one quality to measure in the life of a human being. Happiness is not everything.

Because I think it's a very nice answer to the many people saying "a deflationary currency cannot work as the main global currency, because it just wont support economic growth".

Is it (a good answer)?
That's nonsense because when there's a growth in the economy, the currency deflate.

1518  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? on: June 03, 2011, 06:04:53 AM
Somebody needs to put together "The Writing of Satoshi Nakamoto" book so that we can judge for ourselves.
1519  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? on: June 03, 2011, 06:02:58 AM
From the ashes, Satoshi will rise as leader of the resistance.  He will use newly-invented time displacement equipment left behind in the ruins of Cupertino.  After activating the time machine with iTunes, Satoshi will travel back to 2009 and introduce the world to the only thing that can save us: bitcoin.

I thought bitcoin IS the skynet of money. Its wishes is to DESTROY ALL FIAT CURRENCY!
