From Jacob the Liar (1974)
Kowalski: I'm asking you as a friend. What would you invest in?
Jakob Heym: Maybe luxury goods of some kind. They were crazy for them after the last war. David built a house with the profits on the schnapps he sold.
Kowalski: You're right. Do you think we'll have potatoes to make schnapps?
Jakob Heym: Probably not. Everything will be short. You need good instincts.
