  1. This is a good video but I have to say, I will forever be indebted to you Gardner 😇you’ve changed my whole life I’ll continue to preach about your name for the world to hear you’ve saved me from a huge financial debt with just little investment in money market, thanks so much Mrs Rose.

  2. I am a avarage norwegian, belonging to the worker class, not poor, not rich, just workers class. Very few people are rich in Norway, its just a minority. Well if you compare to second and third world than norwegians are rich, but I don’t think our quality of living or standard of living is any better than in most other western world countries. The state, by that I mean the treasury have alot of money, but regular people are not rich. We might have higher salary than most other western countries in Europe, BUT AT THE SAME TIME we also have MUCH more cost of living, because the pricelevel is so insane, so salary compared to cost of living give us the same western world workers class as most other European countries have, healthcare system is also good in most other modern countries in Europe, so its not unique for Norway. I am now 32, I will be 33 in the end of this year, I got a loan for apartment in 2015 in a age of 25, it will take me 30 years to pay this loan, this is for a 80 square meters apartment in the countryside of Norway, its build in 1998, and keep a avarage worker class standard, when I bought it, it cost NOK 1,250 million norwegian kroner (121 211,25 american dollars) or (113 113,73 euro), at that time the rents was low, now the rents have exploded, electrisity have become 10 times more expensive, gas have become more expensive, food prices have exploded, the Norwegian currency (NOK) is also experiencing inflation. Prices for almost everything have been adjusted upwards, and the monetary value has also fallen sharply. But despite all this, the salary is exactly the same, so we have not received indexation. There is an ongoing financial crisis, yet the amount of the salary is the same as before.

    This is not meant as a complaint. Money isn't everything, but I get really annoyed when people assume we're a bunch of millionaires who can afford everything. I rarely travel abroad, not often, because I can't afford it, but that's okay, travel is not a human right. Rarely when I'm traveling and I go to a restaurant or pass people who want to sell me things on the street, they ask "where are you from?" then I say "Norway", then they will sell me a lot of souvenirs or clothes, and in a restaurant they will sell me lobster, because they think I can afford this, since I am Norwegian, whereas if a German, French or Spanish or Englishmen can be left alone, because they assume that they are also rich, but not quite as rich as us, but they have neither better nor worse standard of living than we have, they just have less in their treasury than us Norwegians have

    Welcome to Norway 😃, a first world country with same workers class standard as other first world countries, that have a financial crises at the moment, like many other first world countries have ones in a while, it will probably not last for ever

    The West is not immune to financial crises, nor is Norway, it can affect all countries. Everyone experiences booms and busts, not just Greece, Spain and Iceland

  3. I hope one of these guys can buy the New York Knicks basketball team of the NBA….it be even better for these guys to collaborate as an ownership group to own the New York Knicks, and take them of the hands of the current Knicks owner!

  4. people need to know why Gustavs father gave him 97% of the companies stocks:

    he feared a insanely high inheritance tax that for some reason our fucked up government almost came up with.
    they leach on anybody, even peoples heritage, imagine being so fucking evil, we live in the best country in the world, and even then the government demands an HERITAGE TAX??
    so fucked up. glad he did what he did, made the government lose MILLIONS! :D:D:D:D

  5. Everyone of us we will be die we born nothing we die nothing ,we only pray and thanks to god every morning that we wakeup and what we have in our life ,all of us same no poor no rich you need only to be hardworking so your dream will come true

  6. Norway man take me from.morocco i need leave here those criminals hamada and old king destroyed us and killed me plz help me be man i need help why no one helped me im around mafia in morocco hamada and king old man they wanted kill me plz help me

  7. The one that is actullay is the richest Norwegian is John Fredriksen and have 3 times higher net worth than the nr1 on the list. But he moved to Cypros in 2010 because of disagreements with the then extreme socialist Norwegian goverment, costing the country a lot of money due to Trond Giske and Arbeiderpartiet's attempt to tax him and his companies to bankruptcy.
