… 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. …

Europe still most competitive region in the world

Deutsche Welle, 5 Sept 2012

Six European nations are in the top ten of the world's most competitive countries, according to the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report. That's a sruprise, given the protracted eurozone crisis.

Switzerland, Singapore and Finland lead the table of the world's most competitive nations, according to a report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) released on Wednesday.

The top-ten list is still clearly dominated by countries in northern and western Europe - and that despite an ongoing debt crisis in the euro area. Besides Switzerland and Finland, Sweden is also in the top ten, taking fourth position, followed by the Netherlands in fifth, Germany in sixth and Britain in eighth place.

Compared to last year, Denmark dropped from eighth to 12th, and France from 18th to 21st. Austria rose slightly, from 19th to 16th. 

Germany's export strength contributes
to its competitiveness
There's no good news from crisis-stricken southern Europe, though. Italy ranks 42nd, Spain takes 36th and Portugal 49th place, and Greece drops another six positions to end up in 96th.

It remains to be seen for how much longer Europe as a whole can hold its ground with several economic indicators pointing downwards across the continent. Ratings agency Moody's on Tuesday lowered the European Union's credit rating outlook from "stable" to "negative" in yet another sign that the debt crisis is far from over and looks certain to impact the real economy even more in the months ahead.

US taking another dip

The United States loses ground in the WEF report for the fourth consecutive year, dipping to seventh place from 5th in 2011. The US is still able to score with a magnitude of innovative companies, top-notch universities and the world's biggest single market. But industry's trust in the country's institutions and policy makers is waning, the study indicates.

The WEF's ranking is based on the Global Competitiveness Index (GCI) for 144 nations that was developed by scientists at Columbia University and first used in 2004. The GCI comprises 12 sub indices which, among other things, gauge a nation's infrastructure, its macroeconomic stability, health standards, basic education, labor market developments and technology levels.

Heterogeneous emerging nations

The report suggest some of the
steam has left China's economy
The WEF's results incorporate figures from publicly accessible statistical data and opinion polls which the World Economic Forum and its partner institutions conduct each year.

For a couple of years, emerging nations were steadily moving up the table, but this trend seems to have come to an end. China moved down three positions to 29th place. India also dipped three notches, ending in 59th position. And Russia took 67th place, down from 66th last year. Only Brazil managed to improve its rating, ending in 48th position as compared to 53rd in 2011.
