The miners also benefit from the current cap, because the reward is more valueble than what it would have been if there were a flexible cap. What would you chose? 100 bitcoins @ $10/BTC   OR say 12 bitcoins at $800/BTC  < Just a simple example >

Miners would sell all the bitcoins before increasing the production, so your point is invalid. We won't tell you until it's too late  Smiley

Not sure why this ended up in mining, this is an idea to redesign the bitcoin protocol with a massive hard fork. It's not really about mining at all. There's a lot misunderstood about the impact of such a change that can only be negative as others have mentioned already.
