… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Brazil markets cold on Rousseff as voters warm to her

Brasília (AFP) - Brazil's market-movers hope President Dilma Rousseff's time is up, but there are signs that voters are moving back towards her as next month's election nears.

Rousseff's main challenger, environmentalist Marina Silva had been on course for victory, but the latest polls suggest the incumbent may have halted her momentum and closed the gap.

If stock prices are a guide, the business elite wants to see Rousseff go, blaming her for the low growth and high inflation that have combined to tip the economy into recession.

But some analysts say voters would prefer to give Rousseff a chance to turn the ship around rather than plump for the relatively untried Silva on October 26.

Brazil's financial world blames Rousseff for running the economy aground.

She took over as president from charismatic former union leader Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in 2010, when GDP was racing ahead by a spectacular 7.5 percent per year.

Growth for this year is forecast at just 0.3 percent and, having suffered two quarters of negative growth, the economy is officially in recession.

Rousseff, who has promised to revamp her finance ministry team if re-elected, has blamed the slowdown on the global economic crisis.

And, when economists say her domestic policies are off beam, she points to strong consumer spending, near full employment and rising wages.

Poor policy combination

"Rousseff chose a bad combination of policies," says Pedro Tuesta, US-based chief economist with 4Cast consultancy.

"She changed her inflation model" to one of higher tolerance as the rate rose beyond the government ceiling.

"She thought the economy was going to rise on the back of demand, but that only happens in the short term. She was unable to change direction when it was evident that that was not working."

After taking office in early 2011, Rousseff tried to stop end the central bank's autonomy for setting interest rates, bringing rates down to cheapen credit and stimulate consumer spending.

That fueled price rises and 12-monthly inflation is now running at the 6.5 percent official ceiling. The inflationary pressures unleashed saw the central bank lift interest rates to try to keep them in check.

The government also sought to encourage growth across several sectors, including automobiles and white goods, by cutting taxes but analysts say that can only be a limited, short-term response.

They have also attacked what they deem to be too much government intervention in state oil giant Petrobras and on energy prices, which were cut following a severe drought.

Marcelo Latini, a partner with the Rio-based Latini-Bertoletti real estate firm, sees an uncertain outlook.

"The real estate sector needs low rates, low inflation and more confidence and stability for the future of the economy," Latini told AFP.

"We don't have this at present."

Alexandre Schwartsman, a former central bank director, told AFP the financial market is "allergic" to Rousseff.

"The possibility of a new government changing tack on such policies has seen the market react with euphoria to polls unfavorable to Rousseff," he said.

Cautious electorate

Despite the poor growth outlook, joblessness has remained low at 4.9 percent on the most recent April data.

Wages have been rising and domestic demand is moderately buoyant, with the government's welfare programs having lifted 40 million people out of poverty over the past decade.

"During this government's tenure the lower class has become an emerging one," said Aquiles Meneses, a businessman in the construction industry who says he will stick with Rousseff.

"Before, only the elite built a house. Now, there are more opportunities," the 32-year-old said.

Andre Cesar of consultants Prospective says a cautious electorate may agree, explaining: "It's hard to swap what you know for what you don't. They have a job, a TV, a car..."
