9. You have described Dubai.

And remember the reports coming out of Iraq about the slave labor that contractors hired to build the Embassy and aother areas? Poor men from Bagladesh and other similar countries were hired for "good jobs", put on airplanes, their passports taken, and found themselves in Iraq when they landed, where they were forced to live behind wired and gated compounds, to live in barracks, and then charged for rent and food out of their meager pay.
This labor model has become more widespread of late.
