America has been through the biggest financial crisis since the great Depression, unemployment numbers are frightening, median wages have been flat since the 1970s, and it is common to expect that things will get worse before they get better. Certainly, the multidecade stagnation is not yet over. How will we get out of this mess? One political party tries to increase government spending even when we have no good plan for paying for ballooning programs like Medicare and Social Security. The other party seems to think tax cuts will raise revenue and has a record of creating bigger fiscal disasters than the first. Where does this madness come from?As Cowen argues, our economy has enjoyed low-hanging fruit since the seventeenth century: free land, immigrant labor, and powerful new technologies. But during the last forty years, the low-hanging fruit started disappearing, and we started pretending it was still there. We have failed to recognize that we are at a technological plateau. The fruit trees are barer than we want to believe. That's it. That is what has gone wrong and that is why our politics is crazy.Cowen reveals the underlying causes of our past prosperity and how we will generate it again. This is a passionate call for a new respect of scientific innovations that benefit not only the powerful elites, but humanity as a whole.

“Important, timely . . . should be the basis for a national debate about how we each want to grow older and what kind of society we want to do it in.” —John Rother, Group Executive Officer of Policy and Strategy, AARP
The aging of the boomer generation has unleashed a veritable tidal wave of gloomy punditry, advertising for financial services, and forecasts of impending national bankruptcy. In The Long Baby Boom, Jeff Goldsmith counters the catastrophic predictions with a far more optimistic scenario.
Drawing on evidence that most baby boomers plan on working long past age sixty-five, Goldsmith argues that they will have a constructive impact on society. By assuming a much larger portion of the financial burden of their own retirement and health costs, they will help preserve Social Security and Medicare for the less fortunate—and for successive generations.
The Long Baby Boom is the first comprehensive forecast of baby boomers’ career plans, health trends, and cultural and political values. Goldsmith’s pro-work, pro-savings, pro-health social policy emphasizes personal responsibility without ripping the social safety net. Constructive and innovative, The Long Baby Boom doesn’t promise a cloud-free future, but it does reassure us that the sky isn’t falling.
Let go of negativity. Start seeing the good in the world to become the good in the world.
Today’s climate constantly bombards us with all the reasons why we’re doomed. From politics to business to current events and more, there’s always the inevitable headline of bad news. Combined with the challenges and obstacles that each of us face as we journey through life, it’s enough to create a cloud over our world, affecting how we approach the people around us, as well as the goals and dreams we have for our lives.
Yet every movement, invention, solution, or positive change started with the belief that there’s something better out there.
Through her story of overcoming personal challenges that threatened to derail her family’s future, author and speaker Jess Ekstrom shares with readers how she learned to focus on the good in the world, even in the midst of circumstances that make most stop trusting, stop risking, and stop imagining the best for themselves. Chasing the Bright Side is Jess’s story of how she learned to anchor herself in optimism, treating it as a trained muscle, in order to start trusting again, start taking risks again, and start reimagining the best for herself and the world.
All of this led Jess to see a need and meet it, creating the Headbands of Hope, which has given away headbands to children with cancer in every hospital in America and in fifteen countries since 2012. It’s Jess’s hope that her story and what she’s learned along the way will inspire readers to lean into optimism, reimagine their purpose, and go forth to create more good in the world.
