Bitcoin update

I wanted to compare the bitcoin forecast to the latest data even though I updated it only last week since according to the model, it should move fast (logarithmic decline of -2.6/y).

Update 4 October 2017

Update 9 October 2017

Update 11 October 2017


Update 17 October 2017

There appears to have been yet another shock, so I considered this a failure of model usefulness. See more here.

Also, try to avoid the use of dollar signs as they interfere with my setup of mathjax. I left it set up that way because I think this is funny for an economics blog. You can use € or £ instead.
