Well when country doesn't give any money to their people it gets rich.
That's why Dubai has all of it's "breathtaking" structures.

#2, It's the oil. As long as they're sitting on black gold, they have 0% taxes and thus wealthy businesses :)

#(removed comment), #4, #7, #12. Well you're kind of right. Because there are two sides at this.

80% of the people living in Dubai are foreign workers.

Many of these people are from western countries and work somewhere like for example Nokia Siemens Networks and other places where they have high income.
But many people are from countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. These migrant workers earn approximately 120 euros per month and have no civil rights and human rights groups have criticized their living conditions.

So Dubai has two kind of people working there. The ones who are there just to stop by and fly back home every weekend to their families (ok, not everyone) and the ones who live in "criticized conditions".

So by "their people" i mean people who work for Dubai, NOT the people who work for non-dubai companies. These Nokia workers don't get their money from Dudai so they don't count. But these struction workers do!

Dubai uses cheap foreign workers who have no clue how much they should actually earn to build their city. And as the first article of United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights says: "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood." And in Dubai rich people get richer and poor people get kicked.

But maybe i was just thinking for the little people. Because some people do!

Now imagine, if some of the fireworks did not blow up, by some I mean half or more. In my opinion the engineers etc. would have been killed an hour later, right?
