Marginal Revolution goes to Dubai

I grew up in Dubai. When I was young, my brother and I read a Garfield cartoon where he tried to mail Nermal the kitten to Abu Dhabi. We thought this was really funny until we realized that Abu Dhabi, just up the road from Dubai, was a punchline because it was so obscure and Dubai was even more obscure than that -- too obscure to even be funny for being obscure.

Fast forward 20 years and Dubai is being written about on Marginal Revolution. Tyler asks if Dubai will ever become a major tourism destination. I say it already is.
