Do you know how much WT made from the sale of Brooklyn properties? 1 billion dollars?
Do you know how much the Mormon church collects in tithes each year? 8 billion or so?
At the end of the day, it doesn't matter whether it is 1 billion or 100. What is important is how much money is going out relative to what's coming in. Watchtower admittedly found itself in the red not long ago, which lead to the austerity measures and the begging for more donations. It seems the sales in Brooklyn injected some much needed cash.
The question is: Will all the cuts they've made in expenditures be enough to make their finances sustainable in the long run?
