I mean, we Americans can waste money, but this, really, is nothing short of astounding: Part of me says, "Hey, this is really cool". Another part of me finds it disturbing for political reasons. (I can think of a few places where people could benefit tremendously if the folks in the United Arab Emirates would just build them a city.) Nonetheless, this should be something of a challenge. I'm sure we'll hear something about it from National Geographic in the future.
