Printing an additional 16 million tractazines per issue has zero affect on growth.
JW's use the huge number of magazines printed
that's the point, printing has DECREASED, and continues to decrease!
that's why WT uses the term 'produced', to included electronic downloads rather than just physical copies.
which means that the decrease in physical printing matches the decrease that WT is facing as their house of cards fall down.
Actually you could say the reverse is happening - that the number of baptisms is actually holding up despite a decrease in physical printing of the magazines.
