DIFC Investments Reports US$562.1 Million Loss

The National carries an article today about DIFC Investments loss.  

Beyond the details, this is another sign that the economic distress in the Emirate is not limited to Nakheel and Dubai World. 

Rather the impact from the crisis is broad.  With new funding constrained, the Emirate  is now in a very difficult position.  It simply cannot devote all of its limited cash to triage. - salvaging those bits with the most commercial promise. Substantial funds have to be devoted to paying Nahkeel's creditors to prevent a complete implosion of the economy.  And to be clear, I'm not focused so much on banks and other financial creditors as much as on trade creditors and investors/purchasers in the projects.
