As the middle-class continues to be undermined, attaining a steady job with decent pay and health benefits, home ownership and a secure retirement has become more fantasy than reality. In his new book, Who Stole the American Dream?, Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times journalist and PBS Emmy® award-winning producer Hedrick Smith reveals the trail of political and corporate decisions that got us to where we are, and what can be done to restore our hope for a better life for future generations.

“Read it and weep with profound sadness and then scream with red-faced anger. It seems almost too tame to call [Who Stole the American Dream?] simply a book. It is an indictment that is as stinging, stunning and important as any ever handed down by a grand jury.”
– Jim Lehrer
