For nearly three years Holland has had the required number practising Yogic Flying together to create invincibility for the nation. This group has a positive influence on every area of national life, including the economic situation—which is brighter than is often depicted.

Holland is a trading nation, so it is impacted by the world economy, but at the same time it has a strong basis of invincibility, said Dr Paul Gelderloos, National Director of Invincible Holland for the Global Country of World Peace, who credits the nation's Yogic Flyers with cushioning Holland from the worst of the global economic crisis.

On 20 March, Dr Gelderloos presented a front-page article that came out the previous week in one of the nation's major newspapers.

The picture of the economy is not as bleak as the government and especially the media depict, the article states. Holland still has an enormous need for personnel, especially in healthcare, education, and government. Major Dutch companies are making very substantial profits, and for the silent majority of employers, business is going well.

The article reports that although the contraction of the Dutch economy by 3.5%—due to slowing of world trade—is significant in itself, because 2007 and 2008 saw unique pluses, this contraction only sets Holland back to the summer of 2007. 'How rich did you feel then?' the article asks.

The article also reports that the economic crisis has eliminated the bubbles around prices of oil, rice, soybeans, and all kinds of other natural resourses, which had been driven to abnormal levels. These prices are normal again, the article states.

Salaries are higher, the article continues, in comparison to expected inflation around 1%, increasing disposable income in Holland, which will have a positive impact on consumption of goods, which in turn will contribute to economic growth.

The article also reports that small and medium size enterprises are not worried by the slowing of world trade; they are concerned about finding sufficient personnel in an employment market that is shrinking, due to the ageing population.

Dr Gelderloos also highlighted recent statistics about the economy, which Global Good News will feature in the coming days.
