Fully Grown by 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. 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.

Utopia for Realists and How We Can Get There by In Utopia for Realists, Rutger Bregman shows that we can construct a society with visionary ideas that are, in fact, wholly implementable.
