Join the Conversation about America's Dream

I. Introduction

Here are the ten questions from my book, America's Dream at a Crossroads, The 2024 Presidential Election, and Beyond. Please share your ideas on some or all of these questions. Let's create a conversation about the book.

II. The American Dream in the Election Context


  1. How have the definitions and expectations of the American Dream evolved, and how do the 2024 presidential candidates' policies reflect these changes? Reflect on the historical and modern interpretations of the American Dream and analyze how current political platforms address these evolving expectations.

  2. In what ways do the economic policies of Joe Biden and Donald Trump differ in their potential impact on achieving the American Dream? Compare the economic strategies proposed by both candidates and discuss their implications for wealth-building, job creation, and economic mobility.

  3. How does the education policy of each candidate aim to bridge or widen the gap in access to quality education, and what impact does this have on the American Dream? Assess the education reforms proposed by Biden and Trump and consider how these policies might affect educational equity and opportunities for future generations.

  4.  To what extent do the healthcare plans of the 2024 candidates influence the accessibility and affordability of healthcare as a component of the American Dream? Analyze the healthcare proposals from both candidates, focusing on how these plans might alter access to healthcare services and financial stability for American families.

  5. How do the candidates' stances on immigration shape the concept of the American Dream for immigrants and their descendants? Discuss the immigration policies of Biden and Trump and their potential effects on the opportunities available to immigrants pursuing the American Dream.


III. The American Dream Beyond the Election


  1. What are the long-term implications of current economic trends on the viability of the American Dream for future generations? Consider the impact of trends such as automation, globalization, and economic inequality on the sustainability of the American Dream.

  2. How can education systems be reformed to better prepare individuals for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century while supporting the American Dream? Explore innovative educational approaches that can equip people with the skills and knowledge necessary for success in a rapidly changing world.

  3. How can communities foster a sense of belonging and support to help individuals achieve their version of the American Dream? Discuss community-based initiatives and social support systems that enhance social cohesion and provide pathways to personal and collective success.

  4. How does environmental sustainability intersect with pursuing the American Dream, and what role should policy play in this relationship? Examine the importance of sustainable practices and policies in ensuring that the pursuit of the American Dream does not come at the expense of the environment. This can be done to restore trust in institutions and governance and reinforce the foundation of the American Dream. Analyze strategies for rebuilding public trust in political, economic, and social institutions, and consider how this trust is vital for realizing the American Dream.


These questions stimulate thoughtful discussion and reflection among readers and voters, encouraging a deeper understanding of how the American Dream intersects with political, economic, and social issues during and beyond the 2024 presidential election.
