Most economists would agree that a thriving economy is synonymous with GDP growth. The more we produce and consume, the higher our living standard and the more resources available to the public. This means that our current era, in which growth has slowed substantially from its postwar highs, has raised alarm bells. But should it? Is growth actually the best way to measure economic success—and does our slowdown indicate economic problems? The counterintuitive answer Dietrich Vollrath offers is: No. Looking at the same facts as other economists, he offers a radically different interpretation. Rather than a sign of economic failure, he argues, our current slowdown is, in fact, a sign of our widespread economic success. Our powerful economy has already supplied so much of the necessary stuff of modern life, brought us so much comfort, security, and luxury, that we have turned to new forms of production and consumption that increase our well-being but do not contribute to growth in GDP. In Fully Grown, Vollrath offers a powerful case to support that argument. He explores a number of important trends in the US economy: including a decrease in the number of workers relative to the population, a shift from a goods-driven economy to a services-driven one, and a decline in geographic mobility. In each case, he shows how their economic effects could be read as a sign of success, even though they each act as a brake of GDP growth. He also reveals what growth measurement can and cannot tell us—which factors are rightly correlated with economic success, which tell us nothing about significant changes in the economy, and which fall into a conspicuously gray area. Sure to be controversial, Fully Grown will reset the terms of economic debate and help us think anew about what a successful economy looks like.

By his eighteenth birthday, Ben Bennefield is known as the boy who lost his heart to the Yankee girl who spent her summers in Gold Dust. Anna Mancini, an artist from New York, is older and far more sophisticated than Ben. Though she takes him as her lover, by summer's end, she realizes the vast differences in their backgrounds and she leaves the small southern town abruptly. Ben had planned to graduate from high school and attend college. But his dreams fade when both parents die within years of each other, leaving young Ben heir to the family cotton farm. Through the years, Ben is bewitched by a cast of female characters, each harboring their own secrets, but he never forgets Anna. In his pursuit of her, Ben finds parts of his past, forcing him to search more closely for pieces that will help him move toward peace within himself and with those who scripted his life. With endearing characters, "A Full-Grown Man" addresses the compelling themes of relationships, family, and the messiness of living. While establishing a powerful sense of time and place, it asks, "When does a boy become a full-grown man?"

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER “[E]ssential reading for our dismal times.” —The Wall Street Journal One of Bustle’s “Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2020” PopSugar’s “26 Incredible New Books Coming Your Way This August” Good Housekeeping’s “25 New Fall Books You Have to Read This Season” Lit Hub’s “Most Anticipated Books of 2020” Fleabag meets Conversations with Friends in this brutally honest, observant, original novel about a woman going through a breakup…but really having more of a breakdown. Jenny McLaine’s life is falling apart. Her friendships are flagging. Her body has failed her. She’s just lost her column at The Foof because she isn’t the fierce voice new feminism needs. Her ex has gotten together with another woman. And worst of all: Jenny’s mother is about to move in. Having left home at eighteen to remake herself as a self-sufficient millennial, Jenny is now in her thirties and nothing is as she thought it would be. Least of all adulthood. Told in live-wire prose, texts, emails, script dialogue, and social media messages, Grown Ups is a neurotic dramedy of 21st-century manners for the digital age. It reckons with what it means to exist in a woman’s body: to sing and dance and work and mother and sparkle and equalize and not complain and be beautiful and love your imperfections and stay strong and show your vulnerability and bake and box… But, despite our impossible expectations of women, Emma Jane Unsworth never lets Jenny off the hook. Jenny’s life is falling apart at her own hands and whether or not she has help from her mother or her friends, Jenny is the only one who will be able to pick up the pieces and learn how to, more or less, grow up. Or will she?

"Well-ripened sound fruit is healthful. It is also a valuable food. It should form a part of every meal, fresh where possible, or dried, canned or otherwise preserved. Home-grown fruit is desirable -- Because it reaches the family fresh and in the best possible condition. Because the family has fruit of which it would often be deprived if it had to be purchased. Because, if the proper varieties to be selected, a continuous supply of fruit of superior quality may be secured regardless of market prices. Because any surplus may be sold without difficulty or may be canned, evaporated, or otherwise conserved for use when fresh fruit is not available. Because the care of the home fruit garden provides for spare time congenial and profitable occupation which is in reality recreation for those who enjoy seeing things grow,This bulletin aims to furnish, in concise form, information that will be of practical help to the beginner in fruit growing. It deals with the widely grown , temperate-climate fruits, such as the apple, pear, peach, and plum. Lists of desirable varieties of these fruits are given for the different parts of the country. Because of the number of fruits considered and the territory covered, cultural directions are necessarily brief, but they cover the most important general points." -- p. 2
