Dubai is a very different place from any other in the Persian Gulf. Its economy isn’t based on oil, natural gas or any other raw material, but mainly on tourism, transport, trade and finance.

But, despite not being rich in natural resources, in the last four decades, Dubai became one of the most prosperous places in history. The tallest building in the world, the largest shopping mall, the largest airport, the most luxurious hotel. You can find everything here.

However, 2018 hasn’t exactly been this emirate’s happiest year. Today more and more analysts are wondering whether Dubai is about to undergo a huge crisis.

And this is, precisely, the main question. Will Dubai be losing its shine?

  7. Dubai is a crystal palace erected on the shakiest of foundations; it is not a self-sustaining city — sooner or later, it is bound to crumble. Even UAE as a country has a baseless and questionable economy; one that’s more viable as a Disney theme park than a bona fide nation. It’s analogous to a fake ballerina dancing on thin ice. And I have a feeling people are starting to wise up to the fact.

  8. “Drink alcohol, eat pork & pray at a catholic church”

    You have a weird definition of human rights.

  9. Hmm, I guess they could do their second best thing – making egg timers. Once westerners leave, the place will return back to being a shithole that it always was

  16. a big pr stint of opening a synagogue is supposed to be a sign of progression yet gay travelers are sitting in Dubai prison to this day for holding hands in public. Syria, Lebanon and Jordan are far more progressive than any of the gulf nations

  20. "Opening up to the world has been a breath of fresh air to human rights" – but homosexuality is still criminalized there so I'm not entirely sure how fresh that air is.

  21. The number one reason Dubai and the UAE as a whole was a success was that unlike the Kuwaitis and the Saudis, the people of UAE were never arrogant and rude to people! they were extremely welcoming, One of the major reasons people have become vary now is because the UAE Crown Princeès willingness to suck up to MBS!

  24. I hear there are planes that fly non stop from London to Sydney / Melbourne. They don't need to stop in Dubai anymore. I guess, if this grows, that makes a lot of change for the region.

  27. Unfortunately, Dubai seems to be built on the debt bubble in the rest of the world. Nothing they can do but suffering from the crash of what is out of their control. "A small open economy" it is traditionally called.

  28. In short, Saudi is raining on Dubai's parade.

  29. "Doo-Bye," The Billionaires Dizzworld. If it weren't for dumbass Western Countries purchasing their oil, they'd be wiping their asses with coarse sand. Dubai is the new China.
