The vast amount of that wealth should be in Western hands, for not only finding the oil, and developing the technology to extract it, but for inventing the industry in which the oil is used to create products. KGS

A night’s bill more than 80 000: “Not in any way unusual,”
MTV3: A bar invoice for one night has been the center of attention on both Twitter and Facebook in recent days, which has impoverished the owner of more than 80 000 euros.
The bill of about 83 000 euros (387 988 dirhams), was rung up at the Fairmont Hotel’s Cavalli Club located in Dubai.
The bar invoice included, among other things, one six-liter bottle of Cristal champagne, which was priced at € 27 000. The invoice also included, inter alia, a three-liter bottle of vodka, whiskey, and a 25 EUR cake.
Many people have doubted the authenticity of the invoice. the nightclub representative, David Lescarre says, however, at arabianbusiness.com website that bills like this at the top club in no way uncommon.
– While the recession has affected both individuals and businesses in 2011, the Cavalli Club still has enough visitors who use plenty of money, Lescarre said.
– Last year, a two-table troupe’s average consumption during one evening ranged from 400 000 500 000 dirhams dirhams (42 000 – 100 000 EUR), and we believe that trend to continue this year as well. Now, one person has already spent a little less than 400 000 dirham.
