After Zero Hedge stirred up a hornets' nest this weekend over some recent dramatic changes in MIT's Billion Prices Poject (here and here), it appears the entire venture has been put on indefinite hiatus. It seems a few more (important) people have now realized the implicit value of this information and decided to remove it entirely from the public domain. In the meantime we can only hope that alleged lawsuit by China to prevent its real inflation data from becoming public goes nowhere fast.
Read the previous two articles and the comments to see what may have brought on this stunning development.
We can only hope we are wrong that this is a permanent resolution of disclosure of critical data to the public.
