I don't know if this is the right forum . . . I figured this would make more sense here compared with posting it in Economics. I'm watching the Law & Order episode tonight (commercial) and its plot has to do with a diamond heist. This may be a little mixed up thinking, but the diamonds in the show got me to thinking about what part the stones play in trading. Wouldn't the demand for diamonds be an indication of overall global wealth? Does anyone track the average price of diamonds? I'm going to research this a little after the show's over. I wanted to post to see what everybody thougt. I'll be back.
