Too Long; Didn't Read

<span>I’</span>ve noticed a few not so subtle differences in how economists write about Bitcoin in contrast to how mathematicians and computer scientists handle the subject. For the most part the economist is better at communicating with the public and most journalists tend to overvalue the opinions of the economist. The economist speaks of market forces, bubbles, intrinsic value and whether or not this is the right time to buy or jump ship. There are price predictions, analysis of political decisions which could influence the price, comparisons to gold and so on. There’s even a website committed to preserving articles that have declared Bitcoin dead over the years.
