    Interesting graphic but I wonder what it really tells us. While in Doha last summer I got the strong impression that Qataris themselves don’t actually work–the entire economy is imported–Filipinos for the lower echelon jobs like car service drivers; Americans & Brits for upper level busn jobs, not to mention overseeing the entire construction industry. The econ advantages of working there for Americans are huge (no taxes) but what an environment–like one of those futuristic films of life on an utterly artificial earth–clean, crime-free, sterile, authoritarian. OTOH every Doha-based American I met said: tell your friends we’re hiring in all fields.
