Oh Bud, don't be so negative - I just read at work today some super-terrific news: spending on ultra-luxury items has returned to pre-GFC levels! Yes - $330K for two white Italian truffles and $46M for a big pink diamond! Only a matter of time now and the jobs and prosperity resulting from these worthwhile investments will trickle on down!
You know, Irene, I really AM too negative too often. I recently bought a gem for my wife and it's beautiful, and I'm happy that's she happy. But it didn't even cost $1 million . In fact in the face of $46 million, I would be ashamed to admit how economical this stone was. Nevertheless, it has brought a lot of happiness to the recipient and to the giver. All this at economical costs. So there's something positive. :)
