Wat Corp is flush with money. There product is a hope--obey us and God might let you live. GB knows they can say and change beliefs,doctrine, twist scripture without losing more then they gain. Good example is 1975. Wat corp is bigger now then it was then. Now the mag reduction---witnesses are loving it. Corp has successfully changed from a huge printing operation to a huge internet and media real estate operation, all state of the art. Like other successful corporations Wat reinvents, adjusts, adapts it's business to keep the $$$$ rolling in. Most positive cash flow is from the properties (KH's & Assem Halls) around the world that local people pay to build, maintain, and then pay the corporation for the privilege to use it. Still buying high end properties around here in Hudson valley. GB are not dumb and stupid like so many think, they are devious geniuses. Not everyone in the corp works for free, they have some very smart attorneys, real estate people, IT, design engineers that were offered substantial "packages". to work full time for the corp. Staff reductions are because of reduction in printing, shipping, warehousing, and everything that goes along with such a huge printing business they use to do. High end housing complex overlooking the Hudson River is full of people working, probably keeping track of their multi million dollar money flow. I first got suspicious of the corp years ago when they had us stop doing the local accounts report once a month at the Kingdom Halls. Wouldn't be surprised if the GB and some other heavyweights receive financial compensation from the corp. Obvious the main focus of the GB is not preaching, if it was they would be doing what Jesus did, not sitting on their asses admiring the view of the lake.
