I couldn't find an article about criticism in the wiki. Is there some other place that contains well-constructed criticism for Bitcoin?

    What kind of criticism do you mean? Some of the answers have criticism, which is not related to the economic impact if wide-spread Bitcoin adoption is achieved, which is what I suspect that you are asking, given your "economics" tag. – David Apr 21 '13 at 19:44
  • @David - I think the Weaknesses page is the page I'm looking for. It should incorporate all weaknesses, not just technical - edit it if you feel it's missing something. – ripper234 Apr 22 '13 at 5:26

Here's the page on the wiki where weaknesses are addressed.

    That's more technical weaknesses, it says nothing about the economic problems of a deflationary currency. – r3m0t Apr 21 '13 at 13:22

This is a great source: http://critiquesoflibertarianism.blogspot.co.il/2011/05/simple-critique-of-bitcoin.html

It is a short article but you can learn a lot from the comments

See "Decentralised Currencies Are Probably Impossible (But Let’s At Least Make Them Efficient)" by Ben Laurie. He shows how Bitcoin's so-called "decentralization" is such a joke, because it doesn't really work. If Bitcoin's decentralization doesn't work, it makes no sense to waste so many resources over proof-of-work transaction processing. He also proposes an alternative design in a follow-up post.
