1. The writer’s assertion that UAE has no oil is misleading and wrong.
    “Although UAE has the most diversified economy in the GCC, the UAE’s economy remains extremely reliant on petroleum (oil). With the exception of Dubai, most of the UAE is dependent on oil revenues. Petroleum and natural gas continue to play a central role in the economy, especially in Abu Dhabi. More than 85% of the UAE’s economy was based on the oil exports in 2009.[11][12] While Abu Dhabi and other UAE emirates have remained relatively conservative in their approach to diversification, Dubai, which has far smaller oil reserves, was bolder in its diversification policy.[13] In 2011, oil exports accounted for 77% of the UAE’s state budget.[14]” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_the_United_Arab_Emirates)
