Heter Mechira and the Economy
Nava translates an NFC article that talks about a meeting of Kabbalists on Tu Bishvat of Shemitta, where they said that since the State of Israel is keeping Shemitta more vigorously than in previous years, this acts as a segula to spare the economy of Israel from that of the rest of the world.
Even Rav Ovadia Yosef, who vigorously defends the Heter Mechira, does say at the end:
כי המחמיר לרכוש פירות מתוצרת שאינה של היתר המכירה, תבא עליו ברכה
That one who is stringent to acquire fruits that are not of Heter Mechira produce, a blessing should come upon him.
We are in the year 5768 תשס"ח. The final 2 letters are ח and ס, which spell חס. In this year, Hashem is חס על ממונן של ישראל.
