In his bestselling The Russians, Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter and editor, Hedrick Smith, took millions of readers inside the Soviet Union. In The Power Game, he took us inside Washington's corridors of power. Now, in a lecture based on his recent book, Who Stole the American Dream?, Smith will take us across America and show how seismic changes, sparked by a sequence of landmark political and economic decisions, have transformed America. He will describe how, over the four past decades, the American Dream has been dismantled and we have become divided into two Americas. Lastly, he will offer some ideas for restoring America's great promise and reclaiming the American Dream. Moderated by Ian Maitland, Associate Dean for the Undergraduate Program at the Carlson School of Business.
