Waking Up From The American Dream

 Is it still possible to improve your lot in life??  Was it ever? Essayist Eula Biss (Having and Being Had), cultural historian Imani Perry (Breathe: A Letter to My Sons), journalist Ada Calhoun (Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis), and economist Stephanie Kelton (The Deficit Myth) discuss who is and isn’t able to prosper, what class feels like today, and how the answers to these questions are built into the very structure of our economy.
