Dubai's economic boom is collapsing very rapidly and unceremoniously. Without neighboring oil wealth, they don't have anything to hold them up. Looks like all those much-vaunted skyscrapers and theme parks may end up as half-built ghost towns. So much for their dreams of being the Switzerland of the Middle East -- they're looking more like Iceland instead. Where will D-Company hide now?
But it also goes to show that a country that shows no loyalty to its workers will be shown no loyalty by them. UAE with its slave-labour practices and its ridiculously disproportionate migrant labour force living under constant threat of being tossed out as soon as they lose their jobs, is now seeing the other side of the coin. When the country suffers downturn, then everybody vanishes, leaving the elite "true citizenry" holding the bag.
