Given the steep drop in real estate prices and the spate of redundancies, you don’t need analysts to tell you that consumer confidence in the UAE and its industries has fallen significantly since mid-2008. According to various research notes by property consultants, real estate prices fell between 40 to 55 percent since the crisis hit the region in September of last year, leaving investors and speculators scrambling for help.

And without adequate provisions to safeguard investors from the effects of the financial crisis, coupled with the government’s lack of transparency, consumer confidence in the UAE had nowhere to go but down.
