What new cuts might be coming

    I am in agreement with this. As soon as the publications were available on the website, and the WT began pushing the electronics I saw this coming; transferring the printing to the congregations/individuals. (Except for the third world countries.)

    I also see the WT eventually charging a subscription fee for most of the JW.Org content

    I would not be surprised to see them expect JWs to print their own tracts, maybe on a Kingdom Hall printer. Elders could get the electronic file on jw.borg and print off as many as needed.
    Of course, each KH would be expected to purchase a high speed high quality color printer and the right paper.
    But glory be! The WTS will give them a list of "approved" vendors who just happen to give them a "good" price.
    I bet that is in place by 2025 or so.

    subscription fee- that would be my guess.

    I agree with some of the comments. There will be a continued liquidation of property. Do they really need 3 locations in upstate NY? I suspect they are exploring liquidating both Patterson and Walkill.

    I also like the idea of moving the cost and burden of printing to the congregations. Let these poor saps shoulder the cost.

    Maybe the cart witnessing will simply be about showing a link to the JW.ORG website. No one takes the literature anyways. All cost savings and they can still keep the R&F busy.

    I agree with some who think JWdom will become a "mainly online" religion(beg for donation) system.

    I think they will keep on selling kingdom halls off because that is the easyst thing to do to get money because if they sell any more bethels off,every jw in that country will know that but not many people will know if they sell a kingdom hall 400 miles away off.Ithink the reason they are so short of money is that the bethels in lots of countries are not paying their way because people are doing what the watchtower wants ie dont go to collage and get a good job and spend lots of time on the carts rather than geting paid money

    Aprox 2020 all kingdom halls with parking lot will have a parking meter, to support the organization.

    Car pooling to get to far away locations that were once close and stolen from under them.The money saved on car expenses can then be placed in the contributions box.Double wammy.

    Wouldn't a subscription fee be taxable? That's why they stopped charging for the printed lit.

    The farm will go.
