Dubai's potentially precarious economic situation

Highlighting all sorts of factors about Dubai that many who know little about the place may find surprising, to me this article has the ring of truth (based on my personal knowledge of both Dubai and its wealthier neighbour Abu Dhabi).

(thru the excellent Dubai-based blog Secret Dubai Diary - the relevant post is here. If you are not familiar with this blog, it will pay you to scroll down the main page to get a flavour of current events in Dubai, particularly as it is increasingly being negatively affected by worldwide economic trends.)
