Nobel prize winner expresses concerns about Brazilian real estate market bubble.

A Reuters article reports concerns by Robert Shiller that there may be a bubble in the Brazilian real estate market.  Shiller won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2013 for work on market bubbles.  Friends in Rio de Janeiro report similar concerns.  One friend, who lives in a glorious penthouse apartment overlooking Copacabana Beach,  would like to move  to a smaller apartment, but says he can’t afford one.  Prices in Rio de Janeiro are now like those in Manhattan.
