“The Earth has a new centre and it is a tiny desert kingdom gone mad.”

Fascinating article about Dubai: its past (brief), its present (glittering) and its future (bound to be spectacular).  Also contains the interesting factoid that Dubai, with it’s 1.5 million people, owns the same amount of foreign assets (including US debt) as China, whose population dwarfs Dubai many times over.

It sounds like a surreal, magnificent, exploding shrine to capitalism and the free market.  I want to visit—business class, please.
