00:17:37 Apocalyptic: "Inventor/Entrepreneur/Author 120 patents, 400+ products. Clever & Unique"

00:17:39 BingoBoingo: I dunno. I'd say mircea_popescu is passionate about ownership.

00:21:25 pankkake: I wasn't expecting much when I saw patents, but…

00:21:39 pankkake: this is why I don't take anyone seriously when they say that word

00:21:45 mircea_popescu: anyway, twitter is the best trolling venue imaginable. there's droves of hipsters, aging attention whores, all taking it supar seriously

00:23:30 TestingUnoDosTre: I would like to purchase a 3d printing maching, but I want YOU to buy it!

00:23:34 mircea_popescu: mod6 because nobody could have imagined that the terrorists would use a plane as a dildo.

00:23:41 mod6: lol

00:39:43 Apocalyptic: isn't it run by thermos or something anyway ?

00:39:44 mike_c: seems like data stopped some hours ago

00:39:56 mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic afaik gribble takes its numbers from it

00:48:44 TestingUnoDosTre: quite hilarious

00:48:45 mircea_popescu: "Well the answer is the IRS is extremely strict about property taxes and nobody in the United States is going to want to use Bitcoin after a 20% tax on it. That combined with Bitcoin rumors about China banning it means we won't see $525." << anon expert, april 15th around noon.

00:48:58 mircea_popescu: bitcoin goes blazing past 525, about twelve hours later.

00:49:08 mircea_popescu: after wallowing in the 400s for weeks.

00:49:17 mircea_popescu: the anon experts are a very valuable signal, turns out.

00:49:21 TestingUnoDosTre: and he had to make a SuperPac that was called Dems and Independents for Rauner, because he figured that those groups wouldnt want to contribute to a fund called "citizens for Rauner"

00:49:51 TestingUnoDosTre: pretty sure half the people who post on there are just trying to get bets to the other side

00:49:58 mircea_popescu: TestingUnoDosTre "citizens" is kinda republican codeword neh ?

01:44:27 nubbins`: someone in payroll, no doubt

01:45:29 asciilifeform: there's a magic number, somewhere down there, where soldiers start selling ammo, other materiel, whole vehicles - to the enemy

01:45:31 BingoBoingo: Followed shortly by http://www.hqmc.marines.mil/portals/61/Docs/SMMC_letter_to_Marines1.pdf

01:49:55 dub: how many times has the national guard deployed a gunship in the history of gunships

01:50:10 dub: my guess: 0 times

01:50:36 asciilifeform: point, if i understood, was to keep it 0.

01:50:36 BingoBoingo: dub: Well they probably didn't have to deploy "their" gunships, just their pilots

01:54:26 dub: #bitcoin-teaparty

01:57:45 BingoBoingo: Eh, if bad collapse happens the teaparty factions are just as likely to be oppresive and appropriate your crops as the gobmint factions

01:58:18 asciilifeform: where does 'good collapse' live?

01:58:26 asciilifeform: did i miss something?

01:59:19 BingoBoingo: Well, USSR vs. Somalia

02:01:16 BingoBoingo: This goes to the Orlov, the USSR was set up be not collapse as painfully as the thing could have otherwise.

02:02:40 asciilifeform: plenty of ways to lose a head in 'good' collapse.

02:04:01 BingoBoingo: Sure, just less than in bad collapse

02:08:33 mircea_popescu: ThickAsThieves well i was supposed to describe ME not her.

02:09:50 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [AM100] 33 @ 0.0049404 = 0.163 BTC [-]

02:10:05 nubbins`: so i went out to have a drink earlier, stumbled across a poster we printed last november, still stuck to a pole

02:10:34 mike_c: you should use better paper

02:11:16 nubbins`: http://imgur.com/3EMyqp9

02:11:42 asciilifeform: for a 'deserving' client, perhaps print with ink which fades out to reveal 'secret' message.

02:12:15 nubbins`: oo, fun. red ink on red paper

02:12:17 mircea_popescu: nubbins` i had a self-adhesive print last ~2 years on a facade.

02:13:44 nubbins`: silkscreen on kraft paper

02:15:10 nubbins`: we use cotton rag paper for good posters. these are cheapies for taping to poles.

02:15:46 TestingUnoDosTre: science be damned, that's an interesting process

02:16:12 nubbins`: very old

02:17:37 nubbins`: chinese were doing it 1000 years ago

02:18:01 TestingUnoDosTre: Oh it appears so. My friend's sister has an old school platten printing machine that looks like it's from the 19th century

02:18:19 TestingUnoDosTre: don't know if that's what the actual name for the process is

02:20:06 asciilifeform: when the famous Kamkin bookstore (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Kamkin_Bookstore) imploded, they sold things by the pound, and opened up all of the 'backstage' rooms to customers. in one, i found... a '40s vintage printing press.

02:20:55 asciilifeform: (for catalogues? propaganda? who knew.)

02:21:52 nubbins`: lovely!

02:28:08 TestingUnoDosTre: asciilifeform - there was a book burning or what the hell happened?

02:29:59 mircea_popescu: hello TomServo

02:30:19 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: kamkin lived by the 'sovietologists' of washington, and - died by them.

02:30:40 TomServo: I'm sure it's been done to death, but could someone point me to instructions on getting into assbots wot?

02:30:49 mircea_popescu: more's the point... to this day there are people running around claiming they're... "journalists"

02:31:00 mircea_popescu: yet the newspaper died, as did the book.

02:31:11 mircea_popescu: TomServo actually it's not done at all.

02:31:37 mircea_popescu: i suppose each of the 29 will publish their own personal criteria, if/when they get around to it

02:31:53 mircea_popescu: maybe we'll hold a yearly vote at the conference to add more to the l1 list

02:32:09 asciilifeform: complicated, to say 'book is dead.' books of horoscopes and dream divinations still printed by the zillion, 'soviet encyclopaedia of physics' - not.

02:32:34 TomServo: Ah, so even being in wot I still need to ask for voice?

02:44:50 joecool: not sure how that works if the tax accounting firm fucks it up badly, does fed go after them or the individual?

02:45:11 TestingUnoDosTre: that's a really good question

02:45:29 asciilifeform: individual. but some accountants provide a kind of 'insurance'

02:45:30 mike_c: the individual is responsible.

02:46:01 joecool: mike_c: for the amounts paid, but can't be held negligent if accountant fucks up

02:46:04 mircea_popescu: joecool pretty much, yes.

02:46:25 joecool: i'm assuming tax accountants carry insurance for this sort of thing

02:46:45 mircea_popescu: basically, as a us citizen you're better off if your accountant runs off with your money than if your accountant misfiles your taxes.

02:46:53 mircea_popescu: for the same sum

02:48:25 mike_c: what does 'held negligent' mean? you have to pay the penalties..

02:49:09 joecool: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/10/steve-harvey-20-million-tax-lien-ruined-marriage_n_4572436.html < had to look it up, someone mentioned this to me in passing a month or two ago

02:49:46 joecool: accountant pocketed his tax payments, didn't file for 7 years, then kicked the bucket, no idea about the truth of it all

02:51:05 TestingUnoDosTre: Huff post is like shit smeared all over the computer screen

02:51:25 joecool: sry couldn't find another source

02:51:32 mircea_popescu: actually a VERY similar thing happened here last year. i arrive at my accountant's office, usually a quiet place with maybe 1-2 other people present, cause the gal is nuts abour scheduling, to find it in complete turmoil, bunches of evidently panicked people.

02:52:00 mircea_popescu: turns out, an accountant handling the accounts of ~200 small businesses had been found by the tax authority to not have filed anything for months

02:52:22 mircea_popescu: so they re-allocated all teh customers to the shortlist of competent accountants all around town

02:52:28 mircea_popescu: 10 here, 15 there, etc.

02:53:24 joecool: well i mean if you actually look at the returns, the accountant is signing off to say they believe the return to be true to the best of their knowledge under penalty of perjury

02:53:56 mircea_popescu: sure

02:54:06 joecool: the individual signs off to say they are reporting their income and such to the best of their knowledge

02:54:38 mircea_popescu: the owner is still responsible tho.

02:55:28 mircea_popescu: davout didn't wanna let me sell x.eur short, i could have been rich.

02:55:31 mircea_popescu: -er/

02:55:34 joecool: for the tax liability yes, fines (not interest) though i believe would get waived

02:55:48 mircea_popescu: joecool depends really.

02:56:21 joecool: i'm in this situation from the last company i started, initial accountant gave us horrible advice for 2012 since we formed the LLC in november and turned *very* small revenue, said it would be under limit to file

02:56:48 mircea_popescu: kinda stupid, why not use the year to create a tax liability

02:56:56 joecool: hired a better firm this year, they went over it and warned us we had to file, paid the filing fees from last year, and warned us to expect a letter from the IRS asking for damages

06:24:18 fluffypony: BingoBoingo: borrowing when tipsy...? :-P

06:24:27 BingoBoingo: fluffypony: No.

06:24:27 numerisTrade: I don't know anything about baseball

06:24:50 numerisTrade: I know only how baseball bat looks like

06:25:21 fluffypony: numerisTrade: that makes two of us

06:25:31 fluffypony: my knowledge of baseball comes from two weeks in St. Louis

06:25:33 BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: Well, since lending is about pricing risk I was going to suppose a challenge where you might price risk for trust

06:25:49 BingoBoingo: fluffypony: The best place to get baseball knowledge

06:25:51 fluffypony: where all I had hammered into me was "Cardinals good, Pujols good"

06:25:59 fluffypony: "everyone else bad"

06:26:06 BingoBoingo: No, Pujols is washed up and Hollywood nao

06:26:17 fluffypony: BingoBoingo: yeah this was in early 2010

06:26:19 BingoBoingo: It's all about Yadier Molina now

06:26:50 BingoBoingo: I was In front of a classroom when Prince Albert betrayed us.

06:27:08 numerisTrade: maybe some other example?

06:27:09 BingoBoingo: A number of students were shaken the rest of the morning after I broke the news

06:27:42 BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: Well I was going to suppose something along the lines of:

06:27:53 BingoBoingo: 1) You pick an event and outcome

06:28:12 BingoBoingo: 2) I pick a price for the outcome

06:28:20 BingoBoingo: 3) maybe we haggle a bit

06:28:35 BingoBoingo: 4) we agree to an unescrowed bet.

06:29:43 BingoBoingo: 5) If you win the bet you get coins and lended trust, or you lose and pay for trust for being a person of word in this matter

06:31:38 numerisTrade: ok, would you agree if we conducted this later on today? e.g. 2 p.m. GMT?

06:33:24 BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: I may not be awake then, but if I am I would still be amenable.

06:34:56 BingoBoingo: Since this is a kind of novel thing it may be best if we keep the stakes low at 0.01 BTC simply because unescrowed bets have such a poor history in BTC so far thanks to MNW

06:36:36 numerisTrade: I agree, as you might have noticed, I'm still quite small

06:37:00 numerisTrade: MNW?

06:37:02 BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: We are all small, this space is still small. I mean +m only happened Friday.

06:37:24 numerisTrade: I noticed :)

06:37:24 BingoBoingo: MNW was an episode in BTC history worth researching.

06:38:08 BingoBoingo: I'd also be open to considering sports where you might have the knowledge advantage provided you can specify a decent resolution source.

06:42:40 numerisTrade: ok, I'll prepare something. If you aren't on the channel then, I'll leave you a message, I'll be on the channel up till 21:00 GMT, or we'll meet tomorrow same time as today

06:42:59 fluffypony: MNW = Matthew N. Wright

06:43:04 fluffypony: a blight on the Bitcoin landscape

06:43:25 HeySteve: another scammer from old times?

06:43:40 fluffypony: HeySteve: not entirely

06:43:48 fluffypony: he had a bet that he lost

06:43:51 numerisTrade: fluffypony, yeah, googled him

06:43:53 fluffypony: and he didn't pay

06:43:56 joecool: Matthew N. Wright is a former Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

06:44:05 BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: My waking hours as well as my online hours can be rather unpredictable even for myself. If you can find and event and we can agree to it before it plays I'd be amenable.

06:44:09 HeySteve: ah that's bad form, a man honours his debts

06:44:21 fluffypony: joecool: lol

06:45:12 BingoBoingo: "ah that's bad form, a man honours his debts" and "assbot removes voice from Ukyo" Fortuitous? Maybe I am just drunk and dense?

06:45:23 fluffypony: lol

06:46:40 numerisTrade: ok, thanks

06:47:19 BingoBoingo: fluffypony: What are your thoughts on this unescrowed bet as an entante that might establish a measure of trust?

06:47:29 fluffypony: BingoBoingo: I like the idea

06:47:40 fluffypony: and the risk to both parties is minimal

06:48:01 BingoBoingo: fluffypony: Well, what if the newcoming party is especially new?

06:48:10 numerisTrade: :)

06:48:17 fluffypony: well we're talking about establishing a baseline

06:48:32 fluffypony: and the WOT will link the new party back to you

06:48:38 fluffypony: and the amount will surely be mentioned in the rating

06:48:44 BingoBoingo: fluffypony: Sure

06:48:59 fluffypony: which means the educated user won't trust way beyond that

06:49:04 fluffypony: until the baseline has moved

06:49:08 fluffypony: which happens over time

06:50:33 BingoBoingo: But on the matter of +m being a thing, isn't the person with L1 trust offering a chance at L2 trust taking a substantial risk

06:51:25 fluffypony: will those scammed come back to you and say "I trusted X because you trusted them!"

06:51:42 fluffypony: or will they, BEFORE trading/borrowing/whatevering, come to you and say "why do you trust X?"

06:52:06 BingoBoingo: fluffypony: I mean people can /ignore, but if the person who socially engineers trust for the purpose of spamming gets to self up, the only recourse is for the L1 to remove their trust or themselves be dropped

06:52:13 fluffypony: it seems to me that it should be the latter, but all too often it's the former

06:52:17 fluffypony: BingoBoingo: agreed

06:52:32 BingoBoingo: fluffypony: Well coming and asking is the ony way a WoT works.

06:52:33 fluffypony: or even changing their rating to negative based on their observation of it

06:52:45 HeySteve: hey fluffypony, that reminds me, would you rate me for that deal we did?

06:55:36 BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: Well I plan to remove/expire this loaned trust on Thursday unless we can find something to risk and establish a longer term lending of trust over.

06:56:45 numerisTrade: sure

06:56:53 fluffypony: what's interesting about WoT vs. something like BTCJam's profiles is that WoT makes the long-con substantially more difficult

06:56:58 BingoBoingo: numerisTrade: For the time in the interim I offer you the ability to self up so that you can answer questions on your lending venture and establish value with others or undertake some sort of risk to honor.

06:57:09 fluffypony: on BTCJam I see a LOT of people with "reputation" loans

06:57:24 fluffypony: they lend 5-10 times, various amounts

06:57:32 fluffypony: and because they've paid back they're considered trustworthy

06:58:04 fluffypony: but there's literally no other reason to trust them than they have a couple of months of not screwing anyone over

06:58:15 BingoBoingo: Reputation loans have always been a problem.

16:00:05 TomServo: TestingUnoDosTre: 9 September 2012 Matthew Neal Wright (mentioned above) had been offering interested parties bets on whether the Bitcoin Savings and Trust will fail or not. Numerous people took the bet, MNW failed to pay out when the collapse of that Ponzi scheme became fact. Consequently scammertagged in the forum.

16:16:13 TestingUnoDosTre: But some obvious people are still tagged- ie nefario, pirateat40

16:16:25 rithm: yes, and now there is some half assed trust system

18:14:14 BingoBoingo: Sure

18:15:53 bitcoinpete: wywialm: as hamlet said: “there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so."

18:16:15 TestingUnoDosTre: For the record, bitcoin is inflating at a rapidly decreasing, defined rate

18:17:09 bitcoinpete: no doubt that a lot of people will be screwed out of pensions and other lofty promises, also little doubt that faux egalitarianism will fall by the wayside

18:17:59 bitcoinpete: TestingUnoDosTre: totally. it's the first deterministically scarce asset with a decreasing inflation rate

18:18:59 bitcoinpete: it's really fiat that's collapsing unpredictably into bitcoin

18:19:50 wywialm: ok, to be precise: do you believe there are circumstances in which deflation would do unnecessary harm to the economy, its net effects being negative?

18:20:17 wywialm: in the same way we could call some forms of governments net negative on the economy

18:20:20 TestingUnoDosTre: Not with a truly fungible asset

18:21:12 bitcoinpete: wywialm: i see the nets being positive

18:21:25 wywialm: to be even more precise, by inflation i mean rising *price level*, not plain money growth

18:21:26 bitcoinpete: and the harm as being entirely necessary

18:22:06 Apocalyptic: wywialm, you're using the perverted meaning of inflation I see

18:22:17 bitcoinpete: right, the price of goods and services is decreasing despite the monetary base increasing

18:22:41 wywialm: clearly that's the message of your article, bitcoinpete. I'm asking whether it is "always and everywhere"

18:23:29 wywialm: Apocalyptic, no, it's a standard definition, contrary to late Mises and Rothbard, and avoids much confusion

18:24:09 bitcoinpete: wy

18:24:40 bitcoinpete: wywialm: history would seem to say so. we'll see whether it rhymes this time 'round

18:25:50 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [ALC] 350 @ 0.14 = 49 BTC

18:26:21 wywialm: to be even more clear, i generally agree with you that under normal conditions of rising productivity, moderate deflation is very desirable

18:26:47 bitcoinpete: bitcoin and gold are checks on tyrannical mobs

18:27:11 mod6: (10:01) <+pankkake> oh I loved BOFH! << me too, the old ones are best imho.

18:27:26 wywialm: sure, but that's fiscal effect of both. i try to focus on monetary effects

18:28:31 bitcoinpete: wywialm: monetary effects don't exist in isolation. nothing does. and least of all in economics

18:28:53 Apocalyptic: wywialm, not really, the standard definition is the increase of the money supply, or monetary base

18:29:15 bitcoinpete: we can't say that increasing x is desirable because it correlates to increased y without considering the social and political impacts

18:32:50 wywialm: Apocalyptic, when did this term get 'perverted' and why would it be an argument against defining it that way?

18:36:58 numerisTrade: bitcoinpete, would then *steadily shrinking* currency unharmful as well?

18:37:57 wywialm: good point

18:45:20 bitcoinpete: numerisTrade: i imagine that a currency whose supply is decreasing over time wouldn't make for a very good currency. an example of this would be the picassos in the world today. over time, they're lost to fires, floods, irreparable damage, etc. as such, no one defines picassos as currency just as no one sane defines bitcoin as money

18:50:26 bitcoinpete: numerisTrade: the irs' ruling of bitcoin as property is actually quite accurate and intelligent. bitcoin is far more like property overlooking central park than the dollars in our pockets

18:50:54 bitcoinpete: TestingUnoDosTre: might as well :D

18:51:00 numerisTrade: and bitcoins will reach a point when they will be decreasing, due to losses and so on

18:52:10 jurov: i guess eiteher they will be mined or some protocol to recover 100 years untouched outputs will be agreed upon

18:52:35 jurov: unlike picassos, here it is possible

18:53:19 wywialm: bitcoinpete, legalistically, yes, but property and land could be money in economic terms

19:04:35 wywialm: i happen to agree with you, especially considering bitcoin deflation argument, but if so, wouldn't e.g. printed-money-spending benefit economy as well in some cases?

19:05:09 jurov: i think it's more about stability of money supply

19:05:49 jurov: can you imagine someone hoarding and after 10 years throwing in few millions btc

19:05:53 wywialm: so, withholding money from circulation might have similar effects (and we believe them to be negative) as coin loss?

19:06:11 wywialm: (under certain conditions, not always, etc. of course)

19:06:19 pankkake: that person can hoard by moving the coins for free

19:06:31 pankkake: though miners would then be incentivized to REFUSE transactions

19:06:38 jurov: pankkake: but then everyon knows they are not lost

19:06:47 Apocalyptic: who cares

19:06:54 jurov: currently everyone can only guess

19:06:55 pankkake: no, you're not spending that output, because I want to grab it!

19:07:48 jurov: pankkake: market will solve that nicely. miners will take the txfee now instead of waiting for expiration

19:12:25 wywialm: bitcoinpete, let's follow jurov and imagine that somehow demand for money/bitcoin sharply increases. Would it be harmful to general trade conditions? That is, would it generate a recession? If not, why?

19:13:09 wywialm: probably, let's leave bitcoin for now, as it's not money as a unit of account for majority of bitcoinholders

19:13:20 wywialm: let's focus just on abstract 'money'

19:13:55 jurov: what is meant by "demand for bitcoin increases"?

19:14:38 wywialm: demand for money, no bitcoin :) flight from assets to cash.

19:14:55 wywialm: e.g. major 'risk-off'

19:15:13 wywialm: hoarding

19:15:15 wywialm: etc.

19:15:17 jurov: popping of reality/stock bubble as usual?

19:16:28 wywialm: not necessarily - after such 'pop' there are usually calls that there was a bubble, but not every falling asset was a bubble previously

19:16:42 benkay: wywialm: it's money as a unit account for the bitcoin holders that matter.

19:16:49 benkay: note that everything on mpex is btc-denominated.

19:19:08 thestringpuller: benkay: you missing shit

19:19:13 thestringpuller: get a bouncer :P

19:20:53 bitcoinpete: wywialm: from personal experience, when the price is going parabolic, there's little incentive to spend bitcoin when the good or service will be cheaper tomorrow and the need isn't dire

19:21:23 bitcoinpete: so under such conditions, the economy is filtered for value

19:22:00 wywialm: agreed, but this effect can be really harmful in a much more developed economy, with credit, net of contracts, many competitors on a single markets

19:23:15 TestingUnoDosTre: You just have to structure a debt contract with half a brain

19:23:34 wywialm: and then it is not only filtered for value, trade just goes down incredibly - we could go on claiming everything is fine, but then unemployed resources appear en masse

19:24:07 benkay: it will be interesting to see it play out, but nobody knows how it is actually going to play out.

19:24:34 TestingUnoDosTre: And thus we hoard

19:24:36 wywialm: it definitely will

19:24:52 benkay: wywialm: if there's no market for the stuff at the price, the price must move for the stuff to move.

19:25:06 benkay: bitcoin will bring a rigor to business unseen for centuries.

19:25:09 wywialm: TestingUnoDosTre, like what? indexing to something else?

19:25:41 benkay: wywialm: what's the root of your nick?

19:25:42 wywialm: benkay, or not

19:26:14 wywialm: that's my surname

19:26:21 TestingUnoDosTre: Or partially indexing.

19:26:24 benkay: how does one pronounce it?

19:27:09 wywialm: Vyhvial, or actually, Vyhviaw :) if you insist i could provide fonetic notation

19:27:20 wywialm: M is first letter of my name

19:27:50 wywialm: TestingUnoDosTre, but that's changing the unit of account :)

19:27:58 benkay: wywialm: what part of the world is that from?

19:28:02 wywialm: Poland

19:29:07 TestingUnoDosTre: Creditors may also want to shed some risk

19:30:02 TestingUnoDosTre: For example if they own a large amount of btc and want to protect against a big short term drop in value

19:30:52 wywialm: benkay, re: if there's no market for the stuff at the price, the price must move for the stuff to move

19:31:45 wywialm: there are exceptions to this, grouped under the tag of 'price rigidity', which has many origins and which i'll try to sum up briefly

19:33:12 wywialm: (generally, if there were no price rigidity, sharp deflation would be no problem, I believe)

19:33:50 bitcoinpete: price rigidity is just another form of tversky and khaneman's anchoring and adjusting

19:34:10 wywialm: no, not necessarily, it is beyond psychology

19:34:58 assbot: [HAVELOCK] [CBTC] 908 @ 0.00011918 = 0.1082 BTC [+] {2}

19:35:55 wywialm: first, there are menu costs and other costs of price adjustments, such as making plans and accounting

19:37:01 assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 1292 @ 0.00096466 = 1.2463 BTC [+]

19:37:44 wywialm: second, there are long term contracts negotiated in terms of monetary unit of account

19:39:25 benkay: so the world changes out from underneath you sometimes. one tries to plan and account for these things. sometimes the irresistable force is just completely irresistable.

19:40:17 wywialm: and third, most important probably, are network coordination failures. On a reasonably populated market, if the nominal demand (or trade volume) falls, the first enterpreneur to lower prices would not suffer losses due to demand inelasticity

19:40:54 wywialm: benkay, true, but this is a source of rigidity which will impact the real economy

19:41:00 bitcoinpete: wywialm: right, which all means that the losses, as well as the profits, are privatized, whereas we currently socialize large losses

19:41:42 benkay: isn't monetary diddling used solely to socialize losses?

19:41:51 wywialm: bitcoinpete, i'm not a defender of current (fiscal and monetary) arrangements

19:41:52 benkay: solely, largely, a lot of the time, whatever

19:43:14 bitcoinpete: benkay: yup. and i meant to say that bitcoin prevents this, if i wasn't clear

19:44:01 kakobrekla: fuckin lag.

19:45:09 bitcoinpete: benkay: bueno ;)

19:45:17 wywialm: why don't they flood EU with cash, when they have mandate to do it?

19:45:45 bitcoinpete: good sesh. i'm out for now

19:45:58 wywialm: cya

19:45:58 benkay: hey wywialm who actually controls how much money sloshes around the eu?

19:46:12 wywialm: ECB

19:46:32 wywialm: in that, Germany and to lesser extent, France.

19:47:41 wywialm: and the same situation is in Poland, official inflation target is 2.5%, we are ~1% and head of National Bank of Poland says he's ok with that

19:48:12 wywialm: Czech Republic is probably deflating already

19:48:29 Apocalyptic: a good thing

19:48:57 wywialm: not necessarily, as i tried to point earlier

19:50:10 benkay: well head of NBP doesn't have much say in euro monetary supply does he?

19:50:43 wywialm: in PL we are monetary independent still

19:51:18 wywialm: we have zloty (which, by coincidence, means 'golden', and last had gold component 300 years ago)

19:54:30 benkay: what are their lines of recourse and why aren't they using them?

19:55:10 wywialm: and it is not equally distributed throughout eurozone, south is deflating for a couple of years, -1.5% i believe

19:55:55 wywialm: they only use interest rate policy, which is veeery far from efficient

19:56:32 wywialm: and they are cowardly, i believe, as they could push interest rates lower even in their imperfect framework

19:57:51 wywialm: what they should do is to do as-neutral-as-possible QE. Think about it, if you have a bank, and demand for your notes skyrockets, you issue more, not less, right?
