Debtors' Prisons in Dubai

Check this out: "data from the Dubai Police Department suggests that more than 42 per cent of inmates at Dubai Central Jail last year were there for failing to repay loans" (Babu Das Augustine, "Educating on Debt Beats Nannying," Gulf News, 12 April 2008). See, also, Mike Davis, "Fear and Money in Dubai," New Left Review 41, September-October 2006.

Really interesting post. I think there would be a cell with my name in Dubai.

I really enjoy this fascinating blog.
