Kondratieff Winter  is coming!

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-02-04/argentina-freezes-supermarket-prices-halt-soaring-inflation-chaos-follow

inevitably this will follow (I've seen it with my own eyes many years ago in USSR)

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=photo+of+empty+shelves+in+soviet+shops&hl=en&sa=X&tbo=u&rlz=1C1CHFX_en-gbGB490GB490&tbm=isch&source=univ&ei=Q2EQUZqRLMiFhQfu7YCIDg&ved=0CC0QsAQ&biw=1696&bih=1241

I guess they should now freeze prices on electricity to make bitcoin miners there extra happy.

Expect this to come to a shop near you soon.

Perhaps it is not something that could have happened if honest Bitcoin based money were used.

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kondratiev_wave :

The technological cycles can be labeled as follows:
The Industrial Revolution—1771
The Age of Steam and Railways—1829
The Age of Steel and Heavy Engineering—1875
The Age of Oil, Electricity, the Automobile and Mass Production—1908
The Age of Information and Telecommunications—1971

What the next golden age (~2030) will be all about? Will it be The Age of Honest Money?

Kirchner slaps a price freeze on supermarkets to curb inflation when she has the central bank running presses 24/7 churning out money, like the new 100 peso note.
What planet do politicians come from??

Bitcoin needs a killer smart-phone app for it, so it can more easily step into the breach when a country is being devastated by hyperinflation.

LOL Kirchner.  What a ridiculous person.

I'm sure she'd try to implement price controls on Bitcoin too, were she capable of understand what they are.

Not one to usually root for Her Majesty, I nevertheless get all reactionary when this Marxist twat starts sabre rattling over the Falklands.

I'd love the SBS to put her makeup-caked head on a pike in Port Stanley.  The islanders deserve at least that much for the FUD she's caused them.

I definitely see inflation picking up over the next few years in the USA especially. The Fed just keeps on printing to fund trillion+ a year deficits.

I agree but if you are talking about price inflation that takes many years to trickle down.

He's talking about both monetary and price inflation.  Both types of inflation are accelerating.

Gas: was 5 cents, now 5 dollars.

Gold: was $35/oz, now $1700/oz.

It will be the age of decentralization and Bitcoin fits in there perfectly:

I was more thinking in the direction of:

 -decentralized energy - Buildings as Power Plants(Wind / Solar), Smart Grid, Energy Storages of Electric Cars/ Hybrids as Grid Buffers.

 - decentralized Production - 3d-Printing manufactures

 - decentralized money - Bitcoin


In the new era, everyone can potentially be their own manufacturer, their own internet site, their own power company and their own Bank.

Good points.  3D printing is so cool, I think I'll buy a printer in the future (when the price/quality is better).
Personally, I think Biotech will be the next big wave.  Increasingly fine tools (nanotech) and visualisation aids (better microscopes etc.) combined with a maturation of "big data" processing methods should spark a bunch of innovation.  We can do some cool things already,  but we are only scratching the surface...

Kirchner voters deserve everything that's coming to them.  Feedback is important; actions must have consequences or bad behavior is encouraged by externalizing its costs.


For their socialist envy of others' property, they deserve poverty.

The only way to cure them of their Marxism is to starve it out of them. 

Let them fight over scraps of food in their Worker's Paradise until they are eating their trees, pets, and children like the North Koreans.


For their nationalist jingoism, they deserve the horrors of war.

The only cure for their territorial avarice and attempted colonialism of the Falklands is yet another sound military defeat, only this time on a far grander scale.

Let them weep for their crushed false pride, as British warheads incinerate their population centers.

The only good commie is a dead commie!

grow a heart

you mean "grow a BLEEDING heart."  never heard of tough love?

grow a spine and stand up for what's right, instead of demanding degeneracy be indulged.

grow a brain, and realize why if something is subsidized, you get more of it.

I do feel bad for all the non Kirschner voters.  But the commies have to go.  It's them or us.

they just need to watch this for 4 minutes.

don't tell me they don't know price fixing doesn't work (in the way they publicly claim it would).

Ohh they do know. But they must make appearances and hence they MUST DO SOMETHING. There is absolutely nothing constructive they can do (except incarcerating themselves, perhaps). Therefore the dazmn politicians do something even if it is an absolutely pointless thing.
