Hello everyone! I'm new around here, not very new to BTC (relatively). I've been mining since early 2011, but recently got into p2pool mining. I'm very happy that there is a dedicated forum for bitcoin, and I'm glad to be here.

Welcome to bitcoin  Smiley

Ok, so im the text-book definition of Newb, nublet, noobie, newbie and any derivative therein....So, i was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to a guide maybe built for someone new to the culture of bitcoins in its entirety?  Maybe a bit less technical stuff to start out with?  It would probably help significantly in getting someone as new as myself started!! Thanks!

Hello,

I am a US economist with bachelors degrees in Economics and Psychology, a Master's degree in Operations Research/Statistics, with an MBA finishing up this Spring.

I have been watching this project for some time, and I think that I can help BitCoin overcome its current and future challenges. A currency with the properties of BTC presents many excellent opportunities for new businesses, macroeconomic insights, tracing the public's adoption of a new idea, etc.

Hoping to get out of the newbies box ASAP so I can do something a little more technical...getting people around here to stop complaining about "deflation" (with a funny video or graphic or something) would be quite an accomplishment (alas, the decentralized BTC relies too much on "network externalities" for us to abandon the public education/marketing campaign any time soon).

(The way things have been going here in the states, though, people will be complaining plenty about INflation in the near future)!

: )

the current bitcoin-system ends up at 21 million BTCs in the year 2033 as predicted, so i don't think that bitcoins as we know now are gonna be a real option to leave the dollar.

This is not accurate information.  Try not to speak with authority on the matter until you actually have some, please.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I've had some concerns about those externalities, but they are generally minor and no one has been able to come up with a modification that doesn't either break user anonimity, create a potential network attack vector or establish a network version of a "central bank" node.  All three of which simply undermines the system.  So in the end, I have just resolved to trust that those externalites are insignificant compared to Bitcoin's other advantages.

Good luck trying to break the general view on economics, I've been trying to do exactly that for years now.  And you are certainly not the first trained economist in the mix here.
