Overview

This past decade has been a decade of decline for the United States. The decisions we make now and the actions we take will determine the future of America and the American dream. Concerned citizens understand this but they have lost trust and confidence in their leaders, institutions, and the "governing elite." They are searching for a resource to help them think about and respond to this situation. Renewing the American Dream is that resource. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the American condition using a unique three-part Renewal Framework, created by the authors. It frames the dimensions of America's current situation in holistic terms and brings the citizen's voice and the businessperson's perspective to the forefront in a national dialogue, which to this point has been dominated by elected officials, lobbyists, talk show hosts, academics, economists, and journalists. It can be seen as a twenty-first-century equivalent of Thomas Paine's Common Sense.

What People Are Saying

Peter Fitzgerald
This book is a must read. It identifies many of our biggest problems and comes up with sound suggestions for solving them in a very thoughtful and bipartisan fashion. (Former U.S. Senator Peter Fitzgerald)
Alan Gitelson
Islam, Munoz and Crego prove that the citizen's voice is still the most relevant in the national dialogue on America's condition. Their well reasoned and well written book is a wonderful resource that all citizens can use to move beyond anger and anxiety to constructive and positive engagement in shaping America's future. (Alan Gitelson, Professor Political Science, Loyola University, Chicago)
Steve Mandes
This work is an absolute must read for all executives, legislative policy makers and citizens who are concerned about the future of our country. The author team has coupled its research with extensive hands-on experience to formulate viable options for the nation's socio-economic development. (Steve Mandes, Executive Director, National Institute for Metalworking Skills)
Charles E. Snyder
This book highlights the fragile condition of the American Dream and the impact that has had on the working and middle class. It raises critical issues that need to be at the top of our political agenda. It should be required reading for all who want to find new solutions to move America forward. (Charles E. Snyder, President and CEO, National Consumer Cooperative Bank)
