Part 3 of 4: My Dubai by Brian Hodes –

My grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, I drive a Mercedes, my son drives a Land Rover, his son will drive a Land Rover, but his son will ride a camel

– Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum

Given that the fortune of oil will come and go, Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum was responsible for the transformation of Dubai from a small cluster of settlements near the Dubai Creek to a modern port city and commercial hub. So, hopefully, in time to come his legacy will provide a sustainable economy for the people.
