Boom in Dubai

How does a country like the UAE all of a sudden become one fastest growing economies in the world? I mean it can’t be that easy for businesses to grow in a country with laws that oppress every man, woman, and child within it’s borders. Maybe I am going out on a limb, but the growth I see happening there is disproportionate to the recession the rest of the world is experiencing. I guess war really can be profitable for some. Especially for defense contractors and oil companies largely owned by the UAE.

    Anon, my point is that there is fascism all over the world, and you are right, there is fascism here in the USA too. If you read my other posts you may get a better idea of where I am coming from. Big government and big businesses like Halliburton and The Carlyle Group are not doing anyone any justice. The UAE is benefiting from American tax dollars on a war that most of us no longer support. That money could be better spent elsewhere. Maybe if that was the case you would see a balance of growth everywhere in the world.
