Courtney Martin gave a TED talk on how we can live with a new American Dream. She calls it the new better off:
For too long we’ve pretended that happiness is a king in his castle. But all the research proves otherwise. It shows that the happiest, healthiest and even safest… are Americans who live their lives intertwined with their neighbors.
The New American Dream on TED.com and The New Better Off: Reinventing the American Dream, both released in September 2016.
