THE AMERICAN DREAM

Searching for the American Dream - 16 February 2015
"This week the New York Times reported that only 64 percent of the public still believe in the American Dream, which they defined as a faith that “hard work could result in riches.” But the reports of the death of the American Dream are premature. The Dream has evolved and changed over time just as the nation has changed. At each critical juncture as we have evolved from an agrarian, to an industrial, to a knowledge economy, how we define the American Dream has changed with us."
