You might remember The American Dream: a steady job with decent pay and health benefits, rising living standards, a home of your own, a secure retirement, and the hope that your children could enjoy a better future. But are you living it? Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hedrick Smith bets not—but it’s not your fault. By taking on big business and Washington, D.C., the author of Who Stole the American Dream? explains how that promise was chipped away through landmark legislative, electoral, and corporate decisions. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
