Once every six months or so there is an article in the Gulf press – no doubt studiously ignored by the rulers – which calls for some kind of tax imposition. The latest article is more interesting than most as it comes with some figures on each Emirate’s contribution to the UAE’s overall GDP.

2008 UAE GDP: $254 billion

Abu Dhabi: $141 billion

Dubai: $82 billion

Sharjah: $19.6 billion

Ras Al Khaimah: $4.3 billion

Ajman: $3 billion

Fujairah: $2.7 billion

Umm Al Qaiwain: $1 billion
