Dubai, “Mushroom City”

16 February 2006

This is a fascinating article about the explosive, all-but-unimaginable growth of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Along with all the prosperity come many problems, not least of them the routine exploitation of laborers. In my day job I see more news all the time on world-class commercial doings coming out of the UAE.

If anyone here can comment on first-hand experiences in Dubai, I’m all ears.
