Sorry, no TL;DR version -- if you want to really understand why there can't be such a thing as a "bitcoin bubble," you're just going to have to read it.

Money is special compared to assets such as non-monetized commodities, or shares of companies, for example.  If something gets monetized, it can happen quickly, as once it starts everyone has an incentive to try and move earlier than others.  Also: scarcity matters.

I think that might be a pseudonym.

Quote
John Law was a Scottish economist who believed that money was only a means of exchange that did not constitute wealth in itself and that national wealth depended on trade.

It was actually written by blogger Mencius Moldbug (another pseudonym). See http://unqualified-reservations.blogspot.com/

The same blogger who recently wrote the "How Bitcoin Fails" piece.
