Saudi Arabia is planning to build the first ever tower one mile high, three times taller than the current record-holder, the United Arab Emirates’ Burj Dubai building at 512 metres.
At 1600 metres, it is also more than half as high again than Kuwait’s planned 1001 metre tower.
According to the Middle East Economic Digest (MEED), the tower would be built in Saudi’s western port of Jeddah with Britain’s Hyder Consulting working in a joint venture with Arup, also British, as engineer on the project.
The building, whose owner is Riyadh-based Kingdom Holdings, is expected to cost up to $10 billion (Â£4.96 billion).
MEED said US engineering giant Bechtel has been chosen as construction manager for the “Mile-High Tower”, as it is known, and Saudi Arabian firm Omrania as the project architect.

I think reinhardt is so obsessed with scams because he is pulling one off, tricking people into thinking he has inside knowledge and then just before he gets proven wrong he hits the collect button and gathers in as much cash as he can.
hehe i might find myself eating my words in a few days though.

I looked and could not see the book listed.
I don't know if ATS has a reading list compliled but it may be a good idea.
It seems Google Books is releasing a bunch of titles into the public domain today as well...a side note.
