Will Self on Dubai

“Dubai is the first hot desking city in the world. It has no reason to exist except for the provision of office space for people who are engaged in factoring the arms trade against the world oil market. Or arseholes who have bought buy to let properties that are being built by slave labour. It is the quintessential example of the rentier neo-liberal capitalism that dominates our world in the 21st century.”
