I am in the UK. The talk over here is that Dubai property values have dropped 40 per cent. One thing is for sure. The UK is suffering a very bad recession. Woolworths and MFI bust. M and S closing stores. JCB laying off hundreds. Llanwern Steel Works putting men on short time. Stoke on the news , wi...

I don't think that some of you in Dubai realise how bad the world economy is about to become. Thousands are being laid off in the UK every day. That is all you hear on the news over here.. Look at the firms GONE down since about December:- Woolworth; MFI; Waterford Crystal ;Wedgewood ; JCB [cutbacks...

There are some people on this site not facing up to reality. The UK recession is getting more serious by the day. On top of all the lost jobs I mentioned earlier , more and more private companies are going bust or shedding jobs. Now , even the public sector Local Govt Assoc says that 40 councils wer...

This is not just about currencies. we are talking of a GLOBAL recession here, which is only just starting. To have a NUMBER of top UK companies lay off workers or go bust, like they have over the last 2 months is unheard of. These are the welth CREATORS of the UK. Can you name a better, more iconic ...

Robbie G, It is you that needs to get real. I can tell you for a fact that we have NOT been here before !! Governments are having to bail out banks on a massive scale. Gordon Brown has to push billions MORE into Royal Bank Of Scotland and HBOS . Barclays Bank shares fell 25 per cent in one day last ...

Regarding the usefulness of domains as an investment. I noticed when I entered "dubai gold souks " and found that visit-dubaicouk site, that no gold souk shops were advertising on that site, even though it was at the top. With an expensive product like gold, you would think that the Dubai ...

I have just spoken to a bank manager friend in the UK , who was in Dubai in December. He said that most projects were on stop. Was this permanent , due to difficulties ,or someting to do with Christmas holidays , in some cases? He reckoned that thousands of Bangladeshi workers had been laid off. Wha...

This thread sems to have gone quiet. What do you reckon of Dubai gold shops selling on the internet? I realise the traders naturally haggle over a deal, whereas the internet is fixed price. Unless you action something and set a lowest price on it. Is there a good Dubai auction site on the net?

How bad is the "crash" in Dubai? How much do you reckon property in Dubai has fallen now? Piers Morgan has a prog on Dubai on ITV this Thursday. His article in the Mail on Sunday , preceding it is very BULLISH about Dubai. I reckon he's got a few more UAE dinars ........and had a few UAE D...

Arniegang You say Dubai inc is near on bankrupt. Is it that bad ? Sheikh Mo is very wealthy , is he not? Besides, Abu Dhabi has BIG money , so they surely won't let Dubai get into trouble? The problem is getting CUSTOMERS from the west to buy all the expensive property. The west is suffering job los...

Arniegang, You certainly seem to have forthright views on the Dubai economy. Thanks for sharing them. I'm not clear. Do you live and work in Dubai at the moment? Other expats don't seem to share your very pessimistic view of the Dubai economy. I will also be grateful to read Arnie's response.......a...

Arnie, Bit contradictory to say the Brits are the BIGGEST visitor group to Dubai, whilst they are not now. That suggests visitor number have dropped like a stone. Besides , that World Visitor Numbers item on http://www.visit-dubai.co.uk suggests that Russians make up 27 pc of total, whilst ALL of th...

I don't follow the parochial , TRIBAL arguments here. It is obvious that Sheikh Mo wanted to develop Dubai from a sleepy backwater overlooking the Arabian Gulf to a world-class modern city , with the best architecture etc. He also wanted it done in QUINTUPLE QUICK time. His plans are supremely ambit...
