Couple of questions:

1. Can I today spend ~$17 and get a bitcoin ?
2. Current world GDP is ~$60T. Assuming in 20 years from now we have same GDP and 0.001%($600M) of it is traded as BTC(I am trying to be an optimist here) and BTC converge to 21 million coins..
   Will the value of 1BTC=$600M/21M=$30 in today's dollar ?

1. http://bitcoincharts.com/markets/ shows that yes, you could go onto one of the exchanges and pay $17 for 1BTC

2. I'm no economist, but I think there are far too many variables to say.  The value of a bitcoin is in part based on how useful it is.  If it is easier to spend 1BTC than $1 then that's going to count in Bitcoin's favour.  That's definitely not the case at the moment but who can say what it will be in 20 years.

If only economics were that easy that you can guess a percentage and apply it directly to your calculations.

Interesting question I will definitely take a look at (might reply here):

Since we know the amount of bitcoins today,
i) How many % of world GDP are they worth at current price?
ii) Is this percentage reasonable? To large/small?
