LIVING IN DUBAI
In general, the Dubaiites are quite tolerant of other cultures and religions, which can be practiced freely. Without saying that the Emirates represent a model of tolerance and equality, we must recognize that they are rather welcoming to other cultures. Just look around when you are in a shop, a café, a supermarket: you will see some Arabs from the Gulf (Emirati, Qatari, Saudis, Omani …) wearing traditional clothes, Western dressed in fashion European, Asians (Filipinos, Pakistanis, Indians …); In a nutshell, the locals are generally in the minority wherever they are, and it does not seem to be a problem.
Of course, it is not about doing anything! The United Arab Emirates is a Muslim country, so there are some rules to respect in Dubai: avoid signs of affection in public, do not wear indecent or vulgar clothes, not be drunk or drink alcohol in public …
Today, the salary offered in Dubai is generally much higher than what one would expect in the USA. Not to mention all the advantages enjoyed by expats: housing, purchase of new furniture, telephone plan, part of the food … Beyond the attractive salary, there are also many Interesting Career Opportunities: As the 2020 World Expo approaches, Dubai is growing at a phenomenal pace (understand: even faster than usual), and companies are hiring everything.
LIVING IN NEW YORK
Here, more than elsewhere, cultural diversity is evident: 200 different nationalities and more than 80 languages. It must be said that 40% of New Yorkers were born outside the borders and that more than half are not nationals American. A communitarianism which, if found in certain districts like China Town or Little Italy in Manhattan seems less cut off than in the other cities of the country.
New York is the 15th most expensive city in the world and the most expensive city in North America. Compared to Dubai, London or Tokyo, New York may seem cheap! But it is a global ranking, including criteria as varied as food, clothing, leisure, housing … If one takes account of housing for example, one of the positions of major expenditures, New York becomes one of the most expensive cities in the world.
New York is home to the world’s largest financial market: the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), created in 1792 by twenty-four stockbrokers who met at 68 Wall Street, attracting financial tycoons. On Wall Street, but also in Times Square, at the top of the city’s most beautiful buildings, traders, insurance companies, bankers push up or down prices. If the Internet bubble crisis of the late 1990s and the events of September 11, 2001 have plagued the economy, business is re-starting.
New York offers other work opportunities, if you get a visa naturally. You should also be aware that many American companies also look for bilingual staff. And of course, the city is full of odd jobs of all kinds: deliverers, waiters, men or maids … In the streets, you will also see many people distributing flyers, especially in the tourist district of Times Square.

Trump vs Al Maktoum
In sum, investment of the United Arab Emirates on its own wealth created its own long-term revenue independent of fossil energies. And inertia developed by the income boost by homotropism the real economy. Al Maktoum’s emirates therefore have a dual regimen with a short economic deployment and long-term growth.
The Trump’s economy is mainly based on the balances of the war boom and independence from fossil energies. It is a steamroller that slowed, but launched at 170 mph. It does not help much wealth creation for the middle class than Emirates. It is very likely that part of the population will pass for 4,5 years to gain experience and capital.
