The price of a product is heavily dependent on what people are willing to pay for it. Last I heard, people are still forking out thousands for a piece of carbon.. I mean, diamond.
This is the most successful marketing in the world. Cartels are formed to control the price and prevent oversupply to the market.
Now, through so much “brainwashing”, it is the symbol of FOREVER.
FOREVER not. No relationship among mortals is forever as no one can escape death. Can you get out of life alive?
So, what this means is that you are spending so many months of your salary to buy a carbon that would outlive you as its life is indeed forever, but not yours. So.. likelihood of it ending up in a pawnshop due to your gambling kids is great long after or immediately after you are gone forever… yeah! this “gone forever” is indeed forever for us~
