Giá nhà đất/căn hộ tầm trung là từ 700triệu - 1.5 tỷ. Căn hộ cao cấp khoảng 3 tỷ trở lên. Nếu tính theo GDP bình quân thì người Việt phải mất 30 năm làm việc mới mua đc một căn hộ tầm trung và 68 năm làm việc thì mới mua được một căn hộ cao cấp. Nhiều người ngạc nhiên sao thực tế dự án căn hộ cao cấp vẫn mọc lên như nấm sau mưa, dự án nào mở bán cũng hết hàng, thiên hạ sao nhiều tiền thế, chắc chắn phải là đầu cơ/bong bóng.

18 Minutes - Peter Bregman According to the World Database of Happiness (yes, there is one), Iceland is the happiest place on earth. That’s right, Iceland. Yes, I know it’s cold and dark six months out of the year there. I’m just giving you the data. The secret to their happiness? Eric Weiner, Author of The Geography of Bliss, traveled to Iceland to find out. After interviewing a number of Icelanders, Weiner discovered that their culture doesn’t stigmatize failure. Icelanders aren’t afraid to fail — or to be imperfect — and so they’re more willing to pursue what they enjoy. That’s one reason Iceland has more artists per capita than any other nation. “There’s no one on the island telling them they’re not good enough, so they just go ahead and sing and paint and write,” Weiner writes.

The Undoing Project by Michael Lewis. "It's hard to know how people select a course in life. The big choices we make are practically random. The small choices probably tell us more about who we are. Which field we go into may depend on which high school teacher we happen to meet. Who we marry may depend on who happens to be around at the right time of life. On the other hand, the small decisions are very systematic." That I became a bookseller is probably not revealing. But what kind of bookseller I am may reflect deep traits. - From "The Undoing Project", by Michael Lewis.
