Currency stability is useful for trade and retail. When a macbook air costs $1000 things are simple - it cost the same amount a week ago, and it'll cost just as much next week. You can plan your purchases.

If all you know is a week from now it'll cost somewhere between 50 and 500 bitcoins, that's a lot harder to plan around.
