    Well if they don't invest well they will find less and less in their money well as the sands of time sift through and out.

    Kye Ho Kim of Samsung Construction brags that the tower building will be a half mile high, the world's tallest building. Ho said "This building is going to break so many records," and he bragged on that "This is kind of a project like the first exploration of the moon. Nobody can challenge it."

    Now doesn't that sound like the bragging done by the builders of the Titanic ?

    How did that work out for you White Star ? huh

    It this tallest building desire by Dubai a good business decision or is this just them being an attaention whore ?
    Sure they think they can avoid any iceberg! we'll sea

    They ARE investing their money well. Dubai is a good model for what many Arab oil states should be doing.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
