It seems to me that there is an unhealthy disconnect between the cultural heritage of Dubai and the western culture it is embracing. When I say unhealthy, I mean the resulting consequences for people and the local environment that stems from recent development. I hope Dubai is not just about the culture of greed. Let’s reflect upon our own beliefs and values, since development in Dubai may very well be congruent with what we do here, except more intense at the moment.
