So in London there is this display of some of the world prettiest, most colorful diamonds.  This is so cool and they are just completely breathtaking.  Of course I am against diamonds (if you watch the movie Blood Diamond—a very good movie btw—it is hard to consider buying those stones when you witness the corruption […]

So when can a recession (perhaps?) and decreased consumer spending can be a good thing?  When it means great deals!  In the event that stores can’t sell their inventory, they lower the prices on items (basic supply and demand–less people spending money means prices must decrease to compensate).  Being a big fan of online shopping […]
