"It's likely I'm going to study. Most probably something related to real estate, since I think it's fun."I think the irony lies in the fact that when he is done with the studies, the market might very well offer low prices again, which translates to good investment opportunities - but it's not fun anymore. Good times are fun. Bubbles are fun.
There are some rumors that Northug is investing in Florida real estate with a group of Norwegian investors. At least it's a lot better idea than investing in Oslo real estate, which I hope he has avoided. But even with Florida, I suspect that spotting the bottom of the market is not as easy as it currently seems. A good idea for the long run, surely, but it seems people are expecting quick wins. Charlie Munger of Berkshire Hathaway has said about investing:
"It's not supposed to be easy. Anyone who finds it easy is stupid."
Fun and easy. As long as it lasts.
