Wendy Philleo, Executive Director, The Center for a New American Dream
December 5, 2011
Hosted by Kate Ebner
In these challenging times, many Americans have lost faith in the American Dream – a promise that includes "a chicken in every pot," financial success for those who work hard and pursue higher education, and prosperity that increases unfailingly generation after generation. Wendy Philleo, Executive Director of The Center for a New American Dream, will help us look at what has become of the old American Dream. Wendy offers a powerful new vision that showcases new pathways that promote a more socially and ecologically balanced society. She invites us to examine how we define success as a society. In the spirit of the season, Wendy will also share a refreshingly non-commercial vision for the holidays that puts the meaning and cheer back into December.
