Here’s a link to a fascinating post by Jim Krane, author of a recent book on Dubai winging its way to me as we speak. I post this to temper my mean-spirited digs at Dubai in recent weeks. Jim makes a good case for Dubai’s importance to the Middle East in the future as a kind of role-model. I don’t agree with some of it, but it’s always refreshing to read a piece going against the trend.

Jim is also quoted in an extended and unusually good article at Bloomberg on Dubai’s Iranian trade links.
