    When you think it costs them just under a quarter of a billion dollars to keep the machine running. 2 billion in cash won't even cover 10 years operating expenses. It's no wounder we are seeing all these cut backs.

    There missing 119,456 publishers from last year if you look at the average publisher numbers. This seems low to me when you consider how many ones are waking up and some of thier assembly titles which indicate they too know so many are walking away.

    Over all the only numbers that matter to them are those in North America and Western Europe, that's where they get most of thier money from.

    The rational thinking country's show zero growth.

    @Gorbatchov, funny how that works.

  • Sanchy

    Lots of zeros and negatives on the "% Increase" column.. specially within the developed countries.

    7,499 hrs to get 1 Baptizim..

    Another way of looking at that number is if that time were spent in productive full-time employment with a modest two week vacation period you would spend 3.8 years working and getting paid for your time. If it were only a one hour per week program it would take you 144.2 years. No wonder I got FedUp wasting my precious time!

    They should publish disfellowshipped, disassociated and inactive statistics. They collect them every year with all the figures, might as well include them.
