BABY BOOMERS AND NO AMERICAN DREAM

What is the “American Dream”?

It was “in the definition of the American Dream by James Truslow Adams in 1931, [that] life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement.”

Neither social class nor circumstances of birth were to be considered. Hard work would allow for the very real and attainable possibility of prosperity, success and an upward social mobility for the family, children and generations to come.
