Dubai's diversification : from boom to bust.

Davidson, Christopher M. (2011) 'Dubai's diversification : from boom to bust.', Orient., 52 (1). pp. 51-55.

This article argues that Dubai’s current economic slowdown is a direct consequence of the new sectors that were introduced in the 1990s, the speed with which they were developed in the 2000s, and the debts that were incurred in the process.
