The American Dream is Dying, but It Is Not Dead

The American Dream is Dying, but It Is Not Dead

The U.S was ranked sixth worst among 173 countries on income equality. However, most Americans are still unaware of the magnitude of the situation. When polled, not even half of us realize the extent of inequality in our own country. This blog is my attempt to understand how we got here, and more importantly, how we transcend this.

What is the American dream? Economic mobility? A level playing field? A “chicken in every pot and a car in every garage?” A myth that never had much basis in fact? I want to hear what the American dream is to you. I want to hear your experiences of America during the Great Recession.

The culmination of this project will be a work of historical fiction, released in installments, that will examine life among different classes in the United States.

Help me tell your story. America has been called a “classless society” by people who want us to ignore the realities of poverty and of the working classes. I want to hear your voice.
