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.

UN Studio architect Ben van Berkel on Dubai's Museum of Middle Eastern Modern Art (Momema) - artforum news
UN Studio architect Ben van Berkel flew to Dubai last week to discuss his $437 million Museum of Middle Eastern Modern Art (Momema) - the region’s first museum of Middle East modern art. The design brings together elements of the sea and Dubai's tradition of seafaring, and is based on the silhouette of an Arabian dhow sailing boat... should be complete by 2011.

In Emirates, newspapers still a growth industry - Los Angeles Times
a rare bright spot in the global news industry. profitable in 5 years? only through indirect support via lots of government-related advertising. independence is relative; it may not be the khaleej times but self-censorship is in the national's dna.
