How to Lose a Diamond in Ten Days

by AdrianFohr

In classical, economics people are assumed to perfectly rational and markets are assumed to be perfectly competitive. This is rarely the case in reality. For example, we know that diamonds mines are actually owned by a very small number of owners who limit the supply of diamonds thereby raising the price. Also, if people were perfectly rational we would not expect marketing to affect the demand curve. Only information that pertained the product would be relevant. It wouldn't matter if a product had a celebrity endorsement or not.
