Things that people need to save up for would either be gov't subsidized (mortgages) or they wouldn't exist since there would be no credit for them (nuclear power plants).

You don't think people would deal well with the idea of floating value and adjusting prices down untill their intended customers can afford the productvservice?

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

There's no need for a thought experiment.  Just look at Zimbabwe, or Germany after WWI.  Your money was worthless by the end of the month (or even sooner), so everyone reset by then.  Everyone ended up being trillionaires or more.
