Diablo III experiencing Hyper Inflation?

General Discussion
Basically gold is being printed and printed and printed without their being a gold sink to reduce the amount of currency in the market.

There really needs to be a bigger gold sink that what is currently out there (Blizzard Tax, Crafting).

Not going to tell you the best solution but for a number of new players seeing items worth over 500 Million is just crazy.

Give end game players the ability to sink gold into something.........
If you had read the patch notes you'd see they are doing just that with the new gems and BoA crafts.

The real problem is people aren't botting act 3 inferno in large enough numbers...they're all botting in hell so the supply of items isn't going up proportionally to the supply of gold.
New things to craft are going to be introduced in 1.07. This could be a huge gold sink if the costs are about 1m gold + mats.
Add a 5% gold transfer fee to the trade window. That will be a significant gold sink.

Did read them and ideas look 'ok' the problem is they will likely not hit the pockets are hard as required.

There should also be the option to re-craft legendaries and get a stats reset on them for expedentually increases gold prices (i.e. if you get a sword you really like the look off you can sink gold into making it the item you want).
This is what happens when you listen to people crying that repair costs are too high.

No. High repair costs just punish the legitimate players, not the ones injecting mass quantities of gold into the economy. As Shiroro pointed out, the gold is coming from botters playing in hell where the gold is still plentiful and the risk of death is low for characters geared for inferno.

It's not the legitimate player's responsibility to dispose of bot gold. That just exacerbates the problem because players will seek out more gold to replenish what disappears in repair costs, thereby feeding botters even more.

The repair cost hike was a knee jerk reaction to the tremendous influx of bot gold. Fortunately Blizzard realized that it wasn't the solution and set prices back to a more reasonable level.

Well try selling a 600M+ item and see how much gold gets sunk. I think you would not then be asking for a bigger tax. About 90m up in smoke.
It can't go "hyper" because it's too easy to increase the value of gold.
