Dubai, Abudubai, and Doha....(becoming huge economic hubs of the future?)

Generally when I think of money centers outside of US/UK/Paris....I tend to think of Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, maybe even Seoul these days.

Seems like some of the Gulf countries are really exploding in the financial and economic world as well.

Where do you see cities like Dubai, Abudubai and Doha in the future?

I'm not the biggest fan of how migrant labor is treated in these places. Hopefully, I'll be able to retire in 20 years and start a non-prof to push for the rights for these types of folks. A part of me will smile if the UAE ever gets engulfed by rising sea levels

Dubai is already an economic hub. First is transport to fill a niche. Second is attracting alternative investments via investing in their infrastructure. Next is having low tax structures to attract folks with money to provide jobs for the locals and have efficient immigration policies to promote getting workers needed. Finally, have politicians support a NEUTRAL stance internationally, and provide a place for opposing viewpoints to discuss something in a neutral ground that is both convenient (due to transportation investment) and recognizable (for both western and eastern minds).

With the proceeds in the state coffers, reinvest in international markets to boost your customers for some reciprocal action.

Dubai's already there.
