The Diamond Industry Blows

Ever since I went to business school at MIT Sloan, I have been disgusted at the diamond industry, and especially De Beers, the blatantly monopolistic, price-rigging company that uses marketing to pressure (primarily) men into shelling out one month (maybe even two) of their hard-earned salary to purchase diamond engagement rings to prove their undying love. Whatever. So imagine my horror when I read this WSJ article about how some women are now expecting even LARGER, gaudier, rings. Anybody who demands such a gesture doesn't deserve to be loved in return.
