Work on Dubai's Tallest Tower Stopped

Recession has hit the world hard and it has come fast.

They're already building Burj Flipping Dubai, what's the point of building anything taller? They might as well build it in another emirate city in the UAE, not in the same city! It's a complete waste of resources, they might as well use it to build a space elevator or a race of super-intelligent machines capable of making more intelligent machines.

A waste because the price of steel was recently at a ridiculously high level, not to mention that it WON'T be even filled with enough tenants.

Skyscraper: An extremely tall/expensive/impressive building, necessitated by congestion and amazingly high property prices.

Dubai: an attempt at putting the cart before the horse. A skyscraper alone does not a high property price make. At least not permanently.
