A 'Downward Spiral': Gulf Region Real Estate in the Era of Cheap Oil - Knowledge@Wharton
"Dubai is a model for the region; as Dubai goes, so goes the perception of commerce and trust in commerce in the region," says Verma. "Dubai is built on entrepreneurship and innovation. These may sound like buzzwords, but it's actually true. They just had the world -- and investors -- build them a first-class city and infrastructure. So they will use this as a base to recreate themselves."

october 2008 by shehab Market panic? Bring it on
Even in places of stupendous oil wealth and formidable desert conditions, there's a sense that global warming might matter. Last week, during his lecture at the World Architecture Congress in Dubai, the Los-Angeles self-styled prophet of architecture Thom Mayne rightly declared that the unfettered, unplanned city of Dubai is headed toward an "ecological nightmare" unless serious consideration is given to a sustainable urban infrastructure. The lack of connective tissue between its megalomaniacal towers is setting up a car-dependent city much like Los Angeles.
