In that hugely over populated south east Asia, its not just labor, its human beings, who have to feed their over size poorest families and they need jobs, which their countries are not, and will never be able to provide. Just watch Jhonper Patti area in Mumbai.
Dubia, ME, or Saudi Arabia projects are providing some bread to millions or may be billion of families in that region.
Just imagine, if all projects in ME region are shut down, what will happen in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India, Bangla Desh, Philippine. How many women and children will sleep empty stomach and a counter slow down of an already world's poorest economy.
Do you have an alternate in your mind or just criticize on every thing on daily basis. Just picked up a piece of a trash media clip and post it.
Your topic words "Morally bankrupt Dubai "' is a false exaggeration. It shows a bankrupt mind.
By the way, all great monumental historical architecture like Taj Mahal, Mogul cities, Wall of China, Egyptian Pyramids, Modern Dams, American Road and Bridges network, all Chinese mega projects etc. were all made in the same way. We just don't have the memory or record.
So before you post another depressing news, have a cup of tea.
