The commercial banks were happily and greedily lining up to lend Dubai all of the funds as well. All of the $58 billion or so loans made to Dubai World were done so without any government guarantee, so why are the banks and investors upset that the government will not bail them out? When things were going well in Dubai over the last few years, were these banks sharing their record profits with the government?

All of the loans that were made were done so on commercial terms. The credit guys at the banks reviewed the financials, and indpendantly decided that each of the Dubai companies was worthy of massive amounts of credit. As such, these same credit analysts are to blame for the losses that their banks will incur.

However, I don’t believe that Dubai’s ruler makes totally autonomous decisions on economic development. He must have a whole department run by an appointed government minister to advise on both short and long-term economic development for the Emirate as a whole. Where are the comments on their contribution to the current crisis? Why not put the responsibility firmly in the hands of the inflated egos that enable these ‘Mickey Mouse’ schemes to see the light of day in the first place.

Now that the US and Britain are pulling or pulled out we don’t need them as a shipping port.

It’s scary the way local papers are blaming the “greedy Western banks”. Letters to the editor suggest that the emirate refuse to pay back banks from Great Britain and the US. As if it is all our fault.

If it is so unseemly for the Government of Dubai to disclaim responsibility for DW, that implies that the lenders were reasonable in relying on an implicit parental guarantee. If the lenders were indeed “gullible” in such reliance, then the Government is simply being business-like.It is possible to hold either of the opinions you express – but it is not possible to hold them simultaneously.

The real experts at pocketing the profits when business is good and washing their hands off the losses when things go bad, are the bankers of New York, London, Paris etc and they are certainly not Arabs!emk
