Dubai, Inc.

I am preparing a report on the urban biome that is Dubai.  I am fascinated with the way the UAE works and all that is happening within this small desert nation.  We see the wealth and pleasure offered by this emirate, but we don’t see what happens behind the scenes.  Is Sheikh Mohammed doing the right thing or is he controlled by powerful mega-corporations influencing his mind and pockets?  Here is a link to an NPR story last week and a video showing how Dubai works.
