Economics jokes can be costly :: Khaleej Times

The UAE Printing and Publishing Law, 1980, is cited as a handicap. Article 81 states that it is prohibited to publish news that causes harm to the national currency or causes damage to the national economy. In effect, therefore, pretty much anything from exposing insider trading to making a joke about UAE’s latest real estate project could land you in hot water.
Emphasis added by The Emirate Economist.
