2014 is expected to be a very prosperous and wealthy year in general, with some caveats. Personal experiences will be much more positive and successful than the bigger picture. That means our personal prosperity and good fortune will take a big upturn but conflict between countries, politics, economics, etc. will be explosive.
But as above, so below. Those who personally experience prosperity and success will slowly bring that into the general population later this year and in years to come. The individual will influence the growth of society, as it always does.
