Dubai, The Growth of an Arab City

April 30, 2006 at 7:31 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

I like to see good things happening in the Arab world. This is one of them. Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates that is growing tremendously due to its ownership of oil. (I’m bittersweet in my feelings about their growth because it comes at my expense—high oil prices). 😦

However, I am glad some things are going right in the Arab world. Take a look at these images that show just what kind of projects this city-state has in mind for the future…..

If you want one of these islands, apparently the going price is between $6 to $35 million dollars!!!

  1. Thank you for the beautiful pictures.

    However, Dubai is not in Qatar. Dubai is in the United Arab Emirates.

    Also, a point of correction…we do not have higher oil prices because of the building in Dubai. Dubai earns only 5% of its gross national product from oil.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  2. thanks for the clarification, that was my bad. i knew it was in the UAE, but I had just made a mistake.

    As far as the oil thing….it was more a comment about the growth of the Arab world, and not necessarily specifically about Dubai. 🙂
