Renewing the american Dream
We live in an era of economic paradox. The US economy has been growing for nearly a decade, yet millions of Americans feel left behind. The top 1/10 of one percent of Americans now hold more wealth than the bottom 90 percent, inequality that’s not been seen since the Gilded Age in the 1890s. In “Renewing the American Dream,” Aaron Glantz, a two-time Peabody Award winner and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, explains how the economy has been rigged against the middle class and shares bold ideas for how we can renew the promise of shared prosperity. Glantz, who is a senior investigative reporter at Reveal, draws on lessons from his groundbreaking book Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Hedge Fund Magnates, Crooked Banks and Vulture Capitalists Sucked Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream.
