… 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. …

Foreign consumer brands see declining market share in China

Global companies selling consumer products, such as Procter & Gamble (P&G) and Unilever, are experiencing a decline in their market shares in China as they face growing competition from local rivals that dominated markets in smaller Chinese cities, the Chinese-language Global Entrepreneur magazine reported.

According to a report by Euromonitor International, P&G's market share in China's toothpaste market, which is dominated by foreign brands, had dropped from 20.8% to 19.7%, while Unilever's share slipped from 12% to 9.9%.

Such a development, the magazine said, was a the result of foreign and Chinese companies going head-to-head in the competition, as foreign brands permeated smaller Chinese cities and Chinese brands expanded into first and second-tier markets.

Earlier, foreign brands had targeted the higher end of the market and focused on modern retail channels, while Chinese brands established strong sales networks in the smaller cities, the magazine pointed out.

The integration of sales channels will further intensify the competition between foreign and Chinese brands, said Bruno Lannes, from the consultancy firm Bain & Company.

Despite the prominent influence of foreign brands, the magazine said, Chinese companies have the upper hand owing to their flexible strategies at the retail end, which, according to a Bain and Kantar Worldpanel report, requires more investment than advertising does.

The report also found that as the consumer and personal care products market became saturated, consumers display lower brand loyalty and are more willing to try different brands, making last-minute changes in their purchase decisions.

However, contrary to the report's suggestion, P&G is conservative in its investments at the retail end, with several retailers complaining about the small profit margin for selling P&G products.

Additionally, salespersons play a more important role than the brand itself in retail channels in smaller Chinese cities, where foreign companies are trying to get a foothold, the magazine said.

Meanwhile, the magazine added that Chinese companies are catching up with their foreign rivals in their ability to quickly introduce new brands or products. A P&G product developer even called the change introduced by China's Liby Group in its products as too fast.

In its bid to achieve faster expansion in the Chinese market, Japan's Kao formed an alliance with China's Shanghai Jahwa United Co last year, and plans to expand its reach from 90 Chinese cities to 650.

On the other hand, employees at some foreign companies told the magazine that their firms had become over reliant on discounts. They pointed out that over 50% of the sales of P&G's shampoos and Unilever's washing powders came from products sold at a discounted price, which might lead to a major crisis for strong brands.
