Merkel says fall of Wall proves 'dreams can come true'

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013. They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

… 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. …

Tesco must change culture and reinvent brand, new boss tells employees

Dave Lewis writes to staff in wake of £250m accounting scandal as share lose 16.5% in week, wiping £3bn off firm’s value

Tesco needs to change its culture and reinvent its brand, the company’s new chief executive, Dave Lewis, has told employees after a torrid week for the supermarket chain.

In an email to thousands of staff in the wake of a £250m accounting scandal, Lewis said: “Turning our business around will require change in our culture, as well as in our processes and our brand proposition. We want to work in a business which is open, transparent, fair and honest. We all expect Tesco to act with integrity and transparency at all times.”

Shares in Tesco dived 16.5% this week, knocking £3bn off the firm’s value after it found possible errors in the handling of payments from suppliers equivalent to nearly a quarter of its anticipated profits for the first half of this financial year.

The revelation came as Tesco sales also fell, down 6.1% in the three months to mid-September according to figures released on Friday by the market analyst Nielsen. That is an even grimmer picture than the 4.5% decline analysts at Kantar Worldpanel envisaged earlier this week.

Tesco’s difficulties with supplier payments have sent shockwaves through the industry, in which retailers widely demand such transactions in return for promotions, prime shelf space or hitting certain sales targets.

On Friday one of the world’s largest credit rating agencies said supermarkets’ profits could be made up entirely from supplier kickbacks, and called on the retail industry to be more transparent about them.

Fitch Ratings suggested payments from suppliers could make up €5.6bn or 81% of Tesco’s underlying operating profits. Earlier this week the accountants Moore Stephens also estimated such payments to be worth several billions of pounds a year to the top 10 supermarkets.

“Better disclosure would make it easier to spot errors, aggressive accounting policies or misuse: red flags could include a rapid acceleration in attributable allowances, or a continued increase even as sales volumes decline,” Fitch said.

“The extent of vendor allowances in Europe is uncertain, but if they are as widespread as they are in the US they could approach, or even exceed, the entire operating profit of some supermarkets.”

While European retailers do not break out contributions from suppliers, some US retailers have revealed that they are equivalent to 8% of the cost of goods sold, or virtually all their profits, according to Fitch.

The agency’s comments come as Tesco conducts an internal investigation into its handling of supplier payments which will be closely watched by analysts and regulators. Shareholders and analysts are also preparing to quiz Sainsbury’s about its approach when the supermarket delivers its second quarter trading statement on Wednesday.

Worries about how supermarkets generate income come as the industry is experiencing major structural challenges. The rise of discounters such as Aldi and Lidl and the expansion of upmarket Waitrose have meant more competition at a time when shoppers are tightening their belts.

Nielsen indicated that shoppers spent 1.6% less at the UK’s leading supermarkets in the four weeks to 13 September, while the volume of items bought sank 1.9%. It also confirmed a poor trading period at Sainsbury’s indicating a 1.8% decline in sales, in line with Kantar’s estimate.

On Friday shares in Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Tesco all fell in response to further evidence of difficulties in the market and bearish comments from one of the UK’s most influential fund managers.

Neil Woodford, who sold his Tesco shares after it issued its first profit warning for decades in early 2012, said it would take a long time before the company, or other UK supermarkets, are worth investing in. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today progamme that the industry may need a complete overhaul.

“The industry, in the near term, faces a long road to exit this period of depressed margins and crushed profitability, and maybe asset bases [and] balance sheets need to be rebalanced in time before the industry can re-emerge as an investable proposition from my point of view. The immediate future is going to be tough for the sector, but particularly for Tesco,” he said.

Woodford managed Britain’s biggest investment fund at Invesco Perpetual before going it alone with his £7bn fund at Woodford Investment Management.
