We notice that Thailand-Bulgaria, while having about the same cost of living, property prices are outrageous in Thailand, a serious sign of a real estate price bubble.
Kuala Lumpur - Serbia Serbia is a similar case.
Why come to invest by buying real estate in Dubai when it has restrictions and mainly will pay extra money for maintenance of public spaces.
Banks and entrepreneurs are taking advantage of this by forming a real estate price bubble.
All Muslim countries should teach Muslims to pay income tax. Hydrocarbons belong to the state, not to the citizens.
Many disgruntled people enter looking for work feeling rich thinking that the wealth of the Muslim states belongs to the Muslim Citizens.
