They may have their differences on other matters, but Jim Cramer and Dubai leader Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum are of a piece on the issue of what people understand.
In a word: Nothing.
Doing his best impression the classic rant that left poor Erin Burnett covered in spittle--bringing back fond memories of her days as a wet t-shirt contest champion--the good Sheikh says of the media (and Dubai World's worried creditors), "They do not understand anything."
Can't they see that his happy little (natural resource-free) emirate is "strong and persistent"? The "fruit-bearing tree" doesn't have to live by the same mathematical principles as everyone else. Stone-throwers, do not treat Dubai the way Dubai treats women.
