I don't think that's Dubai's fault. We can't blame the whole city just because a governmet owned company got a crisis. I think Dubai can make it through.I stand by Dubai.
Besides, I don't believe in CNN at all. It told millions of lies about China, so I don't think there is any point to believe in CNN.

I agree with this.
This time these "experts" take Dubai as their mistake-carrier.

What's the point of building a super-tower with tax-payers money that is doomed to stay empty? Sorry, I do not get it. What a huge mistake not to take into accound supply and demand. Hardly a surprise for me. Widely expected.

the problem has nothing to do with this tower... it has to do with the company Dubai World. This building is owned by Emaar...

OFF TOPIC:

Dubai will not get to bankcrupty. It still has potential to get up even with billions of dollars in debt. Remember that Abu Dhabi will help it out no matter what. Plus, their restructuring is good enough to give them time for a recovery. And right now, recovery is going around the world. I am hoping someone from the East will help.

To what extent will Abu Dhabi help Dubai? Is it gonna involve Abu Dhabi expropriating Dubai's state-owned company and assets?

I always believe there is no such thing as free lunch..
