The value of any thing or product is, in reality, conditional. If one was dying from thirst in the middle of the desert, they would exchange all the treasures of the world for just a couple of water drops. But of course, nobody is going to compare water to diamonds under normal circumstances.

When Russia was defeated in the Crimean war, the USA government started to coax it to sell Alaska to them. In 1867, both countries entered into an agreement. According to this agreement, Alaska, together with the Aleutian Islands, was sold for just 7.2 million dollars. Why do we say “just”? Because at the very same time the price of a three–floor courthouse in the center of New York was even higher!

It works out that 1 hectare of Alaska was sold for just 0.0474 dollar (a little bit more than 4 cents), while one floor of the courthouse was worth more than 2 million dollars!

Conversely, the former home of Elvis Presley in Beverly Hills, where he had lived together with Priscilla, was recently offered for sale once again. It’s hard to believe, but the price of this house is also 30 million dollars!
