The Tallest Tower and Falling Over

Dubai a tall city

A well observed criticism of the world’s tallest buildings points out that as soon as they are erected, the economy in that country falls fast. This is put down to the fact that super tall buildings make no financial sense, the higher they go they more they cost to maintain and least useful to the renter. Think of 20 minute waits for the lifts ! And as economies reach the top of the cycle, money is easy to borrow, and the rulers want a demostration of the economy’s power. Remember the tower in Dubai. Not quite finished before the economy blew.

I was sitting in a hotel at the foot of the Burj Khakifa tower looking up at the builders thinking this makes no sense ! But hey, it adds to what humans can do and if money is to be wasted at least it has a cool viewing gallery.
