(Well this is the speculation section..  I assume I don't need much more than a twinge in my big toe as evidence)

Sal Khan of khanacademy.org has been doing some videos on inflation, deflation, velocity of money, banking etc over the past weeks.

e.g http://www.khanacademy.org/video/deflationary-spiral?playlist=Finance

I feel sure* he's winding up for a big bitcoin exposé  any time now...  let's hope it's a positive one!
(or at least nicely balanced and neutral as his stuff generally appears to be)

Oh what a joy it would be ... people arriving on these forums already economically literate! Wink


*for some extremely speculative value of 'sure'

I knew it! My big toe is always right...   *and* they now accept BTC donations.

Ok.. so I was a mere 2 years early on that one.   Smiley

For my next 'big toe' insight... umm..  dunno.. I got nothing... but I'll let you know when it twinges again!

This is related to the price of btc how?

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

Well 2 years ago it was the sort of thing that might have moved the price - now - not so much.

It's also economics related - and speculative...  but hey.. mods will mod... and so the thread moved.

This just came to mind: It would be a really good trolling opportunity to come up with a thread which hazek and Bliz bounce at each other because they think it doesn't belong their forum.
Too bad hazek isn't here right now. Wink

That would be fun!

FWIW - the pinned post that the speculation forum "... is for the speculation and discussion of bitcoin's value"  came in 2012 - well after this thread was created.

Anyway I firmly believe that this thread is utterly appropriate for  Economy>Economics>Speculation
reporting! Wink
