The United States is at a critical crossroad. As we emerge from a devastating pandemic and recession, our democracy is once again being tested. Six scholars will examine the multiplicity of challenges including how to restore the American Dream amid a technological and global revolution, how to peacefully integrate an increasingly diverse population, how to minimize climate damage, and above all, how to restore trust in government that works for all the people.
In this first chapter of the 21st century, concern has rightly grown about the meaning and attainability of the American dream. Much of this anxiety has been driven by expanded inequality along several socio-economic dimensions: of work, incomes, wealth, opportunity, and hope. What do the data tell us about the attainment of the American dream? How do American citizens perceive the well-being of their families, communities, and the country overall? And what can leaders—in government, in business, and in civil society—do to make the American dream more apparent and more attainable?
