Why do so many people believe that the American dream is no longer within reach? Growing inequality, stubborn pockets of immobility, rising rates of deadly addiction, these are just some of the disturbing realities threatening ordinary American lives today. The standard accounts pointed to economic problems among the working class, but the root was a cultural collapse: While the educated and wealthy elites still enjoy strong communities, most blue-collar Americans lack strong communities and institutions that bind them to their neighbors. The dissolution of the most cherished institutions, nuclear families, places of worship, civic organizations, has not only divided, but eroded people's sense of worth, belief in opportunity, and connection to one another. Here, Carney visits all corners of America, and explains the most important data and research to demonstrate how the social connection is the great divide in America.
