Abstract:

"The first decade of this century was one of significant decline for the United States. America became a debtor nation ... This current decade will be a decisive one. The decisions made and the actions taken in it will determine the future of America and the American Dream. Concerned citizens understand this is a pivotal period and want to get involved in chaping America's future. They have lost trust, however, in their leaders, institutions and the "governing elite." They are searching for a resource to help them think about and respond to this situation ... This book takes a hard look at where we are right now and what needs to be done about it. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the American condition using a three part Renewal Framework (The American Dream Construct, The American Dream Platform, and the American Dream Process) created by the authors. The book advances a citizen centered agenda for change and restoring America's competitive advantage. It presents detailed recommendations for renewing the dream and outlines actions that leaders, organization, and individuals, can take to participate in the renewal process."--Jacket.
