# A commutative ring whose all localizations are fields

If $A$ is a ring such that $A_{p}$ is a field for every prime ideal $p\subseteq A$, is $A$ a field?

Yes, I would and perhaps even should and could. Would ya? Or in other words: what are your thoughts, your effort, your ideas on this? Note that the other direction of the claim is true, so this would be an iff claim... –  DonAntonio Apr 3 '13 at 17:14
The answer is no. Take $A$ to be a product of two fields. Notice that, here, $A$ isn't even a domain. So, we've shown not only that being a field isn't a local property, but being a domain isn't a local property, either.
