Good reporting of US economy inflation has been updated for 2012... This is a free report.

http://www.shadowstats.com/article/no-414-hyperinflation-special-report-2012

Reading it now... Will post some comments once read.

Hyperinflation 2012 is the fifth in a series of related writings going back to 2006.  It updates and replaces the Hyperinflation Special Report (2011) of March 15, 2011, which preceded: the U.S. government’s demonstration of a lack of political will to address the country’s long-range insolvency; the downgrade of the “AAA” rating of U.S. Treasury securities; an ensuing U.S. dollar panic, dollar support operations and extremely unstable U.S. and global financial markets; a temporary shift in market focus to Euro-era issues; and growing recognition of the ongoing and deepening economic and systemic-solvency crises.  Nonetheless, the outlook has changed little.  With the passage of 10 months since the last report (updated circumstances have been covered regularly in weekly Commentaries), events just have continued to move this pending ultimate financial crisis into much closer time proximity.   
 
In turn, the 2011 report updated and replaced the Hyperinflation Special Report (2010 Update) of December 2, 2009, which preceded: the Fed’s formal monetization of U.S. Treasury debt aimed at debasing the U.S. dollar; the sharpest post-World War II annual decline in broad money growth; the pronouncement of an official end to the 2007 recession despite no meaningful recovery; passage of the Administration’s health insurance legislation; and the mid-term election.  Yet, the outlook had changed little.  With the passage of 15 months since the prior report (updated circumstances were covered regularly in weekly Commentaries), again, events just had moved the hyperinflation crisis into closer time proximity.     

In turn, the 2010 report updated and replaced the Hyperinflation Special Report version of April 8, 2008, which was published post-Bear Stearns, but pre-Lehman, pre-TARP, pre-recession recognition and pre-2008 presidential election.  The April 2008 report updated and expanded upon the three-part Hyperinflation Series that began with the December 2006 SGS Newsletter, which predated public recognition of the 2007 economic and systemic-solvency crises.

This missive includes significant new material in addition to much of the same basic text that was in the 2011 edition, along with revisions and updates reflecting the still-unfolding economic and systemic-solvency crises.

One off NP-Hard.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

My favourite quote from the article is the restroom sign from the South African border station with Zimbabwe.
Quote
Toilet Paper Only
To be used in this toilet
No Cardboard
No Cloth
No Zim Dollars
No Newspaper

The implication of the article is that the Canada Border Services Agency http://www.cbsa.gc.ca/ and Aduana México http://www.aduanas.gob.mx/ will soon need similar signs for their restroom facilities at Canadian and Mexican border stations with the United States. Of course replacing "Zim" with "US"

Suffice is to say that if anything close to what is predicted in this article happens it will send the price of Bitcoin through the roof even in terms of a "hard" currency such as the Swiss Franc, Canadian Dollar or the Australian Dollar.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card
