ARE You NOTICING THIS?? -Andrew Strom. This week a Citibank report came out showing the US economy was in such poor shape that 23% of small business owners had gone "at least a year" without pay. (That amounts to 6.1 million business owners). And now the news from the US Fed that between 2007-2010, US families lost almost 40% of their net worth. As we have been saying for some time, sadly this is a long "DEPRESSION", not just a brief `recession´. But the question is, for those living in places like the USA, the UK and Europe - are you noticing any real change in attitude yet? Is there any real sense that peoples' values are changing with regard to lifestyle and materialism, etc? Is there a "sea change" going on that you can actually see and feel? How many years do you think such a thing might take? VIDEO - "Collapse of US Family Net Worth" Tragically, as the analyst says on the video below, history will look at this period as something much greater than just the crisis of 2008. We have commented many times that there is a great spiritual "purging" taking place in the West - which will take YEARS to play out. While sad and painful, we truly hope this "purging" will bring down the materialism and selfishness that have reigned for too long. We would appreciate hearing from those of you who live in the most affected Western nations.
