One if the amazing and depressing things about journalism is that a story can come out essentially debunking the value of an entire industry, like this incredible piece, published in 1982, about the De Beers diamond cartel’s promotion of a product that is essentially valueless, and nothing changes, or at least that’s how the situation appears. Still, I’d be very curious to hear an update on this story today; perhaps I’ll do it myself.
