Coming up at 9a this morning. A discussion on what the American Dream means today.
Ford: Understanding the dream is confusing sometimes because we think of material objectives. ... It is really much bigger than that. It is quite simply about creating a better life for ones family. ... It is about striving. .. The state of the economy and the state of the dream shouldn't be conflated.
@Rick: So it is all about economics for you then? And living within your means?
@Adam Copeland Do you think it matters what the common narrative is?
@Tonya Where do you see those attitudes from young people?
@Adam Copeland Can you elaborate on how having an "American Dream" sets us apart in "helpful ways"?
Ford: There is a certain amount of resentment by young people towards Boomers... that work came at a cost of family life.
@Saeed Khan What kind of "micro issues" are you talking about?
What does the American Dream mean to you?
@Mike How would you define it? Can it be defined?
Do you think the low level of trust in the government is hurting the American Dream?
