… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

UK to probe Big Four auditing stranglehold

Reuters, by Huw Jones, LONDON, Tue May 17, 2011

(Reuters) - UK competition authorities are to probe the stranglehold of the world's biggest accountancy firms on British blue-chip company audits after finding evidence of anti-competitive behavior.

The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) said dominance of the sector by the so-called "Big Four" threw up barriers for rivals and made it hard for firms to switch auditors.

The latest move comes on top of criticism from some policymakers who blame accountancy firms for giving banks a clean bill of health just before they had to be shored up during the financial crisis.

Policymakers also worry markets could be destabilized if one of the four went under -- repeating the collapse of Arthur Andersen in 2002, which shrank the pool of big auditors from five to four.

The European Union's executive European Commission is set to publish draft legislation later this year to boost competition in the sector.

But past efforts to open up the industry have made little headway and critics say global action would be needed for such a small group of companies that span the world.


The auditors -- KPMG KPMG.UL, Ernst & Young ERNY.UL, Deloitte DLTE.UL and PricewaterhouseCoopers PWC.UL -- check the books of most blue-chip companies around the world.

In 2010, the four audited 99 of the companies in the FTSE 100 index. Those companies changed auditors every 48 years on average, according to a parliamentary report in March that called for the sector to be investigated.

The OFT said on Tuesday there were reasonable grounds for suspecting features of the market "restrict, distort or prevent competition" in Britain.

In some cases, banks will only lend to companies that have been audited by one of the Big Four.

The OFT said it would meet with the Big Four in May and June to explore what reforms can be made before deciding on whether to pass the issue to Britain's Competition Commission.

Otherwise, action at the international level could be more beneficial, the OFT said.

"The OFT has been concerned for some time that the market for external audit services to large firms in the UK is highly concentrated, with substantial barriers to entry and switching," it said.

London and New York are the top auditing centers in the world and changes may not be effective unless they were transatlantic.


Ernst & Young said it backed increasing choice such as reinforcing the audit committee's role in auditor appointments, removing 'Big Four only' restrictive covenants from loan agreements, liberalizing audit firm ownership rules, and the creation of a single market for audit services in Europe.

PwC said it would actively take part in the round tables. Deloitte said it would support measures to increase competition and "ensure a level playing field."

KPMG had no immediate comment.

Accountancy bodies welcomed the OFT statement.

"The process the OFT has started today will consult broadly on what remedies can be taken to improve choice in the market," said Michael Izza, chief executive of the ICAEW in London.

"This should include looking at removing any artificial restrictions that merely serve to reinforce the status quo," Izza said.
