Fee on Corinthians

"As the description by Strabo some fifty years later makes abundantly clear, prosperity returned to the city almost immediately. Since money attracts people like dead meat attracts flies, Corinth quickly experienced a great influx of people from both West and East, along with all the attendant gains and ills of such growth." Gordon Fee, NICNT, The First Epistle to the Corinthians, grand Rapids, MI, Eerdmans, 1987. p.2

I am very excited preparing for a manuscript study of 1 Corinthians at church, and Fee has only stoked the fire! I just about laughed out loud when I read this description of Corinth. Does this mean Fee is an advocate of dynamic equivalence?
