Last week, while the U.S. economy remained pretty much exactly the same size, our best estimate for the size of the rest of the global economy got a lot bigger. 





It expanded by about $10 trillion—more than a 10 percent increase. 





The estimate of the world’s gross domestic product increased about 12 percent to $91 trillion, and global GDP per head increased in proportion, to about $13,460. 





This wasn’t thanks to a Stakhanovite burst of midnight productivity by people from Tijuana to Tibet. 




Instead, statisticians who track global prices updated their data and found the rest of the world could buy goods and services for less than we thought.

Highly aromatic Honey Gold mangoes have a yellow-orange glossy skin and an intense, punchy, distinctive mango flavour. A small seed means there is more delicious, fibreless flesh to enjoy and the texture is smooth and fibre-free. Ideal for fresh-eating, they're juicy, yet firm enough to hold their shape when cut. An average of 500-600 grams each, Honey Gold mangoes have an appealing orange flesh and exceptional shelf life.








History

Honey Gold mangoes were first bred by chance in Queensland's Rockhampton region in 1991 and are the result of a Kensington Pride off-type pollinated by an unknown variety. When the original tree first bore fruit, the grower – recognising its unique taste and appearance – named it Honey Gold. Piñata Farms…
