The WT discourages its followers to get a good education. They also discourage them from seeking wealth or jobs that pay well. Most of the WT victims in the US have been poor or middle class. The middle class in this country in struggling now in general with the increased costs of living, housing, etc. I predict that once the older middle class ones die off the ones who follow won't have much to give. I can't see the US JWs will have enough to support the 3rd world expansion when they can't even pay their own debts.The WT does have a lot invested in property in the US and property values have increased dramatically in the past few years. I imagine they will start to sell these off when they need the money. There is a congregation in the area where I live who has needed a KH for several years, but property value is too high in the area. they travel about an hour to a KH an dwith the cost of gas and all I am wondering how many will be able to afford it after awhile. And, with the cost of living people are working more and I think some will get discouraged, being tired out and then being made to travel long distances to the KH.
