Clearing the streets with diamonds.

The Roman soldier of history would marvel at the fact that today salt is used to keep ice off the streets. After all, he was payed in salt. Now his pay is so abundant it’s used to serve a seemingly fleeting purpose.

I wonder if something expensive and rare today will be so abundant in the future that it’s value is next to nothing. Will we clear our streets with diamonds?
