  • Mining has diminished as a major factor in the US economy, a consequence of the growth of other sectors, and the reduction in the prices for raw materials. Contrary to many popular predictions, the prices of raw materials have fallen even as output and population have grown. We will see later in this book that the fall in prices of raw materials – ostensibly in fixed supply given the limited capacity of the earth – means that people expect a relative future abundance, either because of technological improvements in their use or because of large as yet undiscovered...

  • The term "economic globalization" has been discussed extensively in the popular press, by business executives and by policy makers all over the world. While aca- demic economists have made some excellent contributions to specific, technical aspects of economic globalization, there appears to be a need for economists to discuss the broader aspects of the issue in a more accessible manner. Failing this, the general debate will be informed only by the writings of non-economists.

  • India’s diamond supply was largely exhausted by the early eighteenth century, and the diamond trade moved to Brazil, then later to southern Africa. At the same time, London emerged as the world’s diamond sorting center, and Amsterdam and Antwerp became influential trade centers as well. Diamonds became an even more popular fashion item, worn by royalty and wealthy women at significant social occasions. The 1870 discovery of massive diamond deposits near the confluence of the Vaal and Orange rivers in South Africa was a watershed moment, igniting a diamond rush.

Half of each type were representational and half abstract. Results supported Eysenck’s theory of a general underlying factor.
