Ryan, I admit that Dubai has been in a bubble mode for a while, however, this just means that people who bought at the top will lose money and others will be able to pick up real estate on the cheap. Nothing more than a transfer of wealth from bad investors to good ones.

Furthermore, if you can honestly tell me that Hamilton wouldn't have loved to experience even 5% of the growth that Dubai has over the last two decades, then you are smoking some funky stuff.

Take a look at these pictures and then compare them with Hamilton's real estate development. Even a blind man could see the difference.

Most Hamiltonian's would love to have Dubai's problems (not talking about the lack of personal freedoms, just the crash in the real estate market).
