Most of the people actually lives in Dubai for less or equal that amount and are leading an happy life, way better than in their home country.
Actually we are talking about 2,450 USD / month. How many people in the USA live with less than that ?
Yes maybe they live in the suburbs, not in Manhattan, but also Dubai has its suburbs, and also in Dubai you can buy a 2004 corolla for 2500 usd, fix it with further 500usd, and commute 90 minutes each day, happily enjoying a full tank refilled for less than 20 usd.
