This book is written like a movie scene, past to present. The storyteller is Corey James, an old man over ninety years old. His nickname was Spend a Dollar. Corey James (Spend a Dollar) went from losing the love of his life, his wife, to living on the street in cardboard boxes under city bridges, to living in a mansion where he told of his past adventures and other people's past adventures. Corey James speaks of two people, Spider Web and Spider Legs. Two people who pulled a lot of pranks in their childhood days. After each prank, they would say, -Another one falls on top, on top of the web.- Then they would give each other a high five. What is a spider without a web? Corey James speaks of a man named Zell Vickio, a man who was always seeking wise council. A man who left the mob and lived to tell the story to others. Then Corey James speaks of a book writer named Floyd Stewart, who wrote the book Revenge for Charles Johnson's Lynching. Out of that book came a controversial subject: the Percentage Man. Was the Percentage Man one-third white, one-third black, one-third Indian? Was the Percentage Man 100 percent white, 100 percent black, 100 percent Chinese, 100 percent Japanese? Which one are you? In the book Revenge for Charles Johnson's Lynching, the KKK ringleader had some nigga in him. His roots weren't 100 percent white. So why was he lynching niggas? The book writer, Floyd Stewart, wrote other poems and short stories that were controversial. Leave it to Beaver scenes, you may recall, the giving of the high five. Then there was a controversial short story (2035). Do witches and hell vampires go to heaven? Or are they hell bound?

The United States has been epitomized as a land of opportunity, where hard work and skill can bring personal success and economic well-being. The American Dream has captured the imagination of people from all walks of life, and to many, it represents the heart and soul of the country. But there is another, darker side to the bargain that America strikes with its people -- it is the price we pay for our individual pursuit of the American Dream. That price can be found in the economic hardship present in the lives of millions of Americans. In Chasing the American Dream, leading social scientists Mark Robert Rank, Thomas A. Hirschl, and Kirk A. Foster provide a new and innovative look into a curious dynamic -- the tension between the promise of economic opportunities and rewards and the amount of turmoil that Americans encounter in their quest for those rewards. The authors explore questions such as: -What percentage of Americans achieve affluence, and how much income mobility do we actually have? -Are most Americans able to own a home, and at what age? -How is it that nearly 80 percent of us will experience significant economic insecurity at some point between ages 25 and 60? -How can access to the American Dream be increased? Combining personal interviews with dozens of Americans and a longitudinal study covering 40 years of income data, the authors tell the story of the American Dream and reveal a number of surprises. The risk of economic vulnerability has increased substantially over the past four decades, and the American Dream is becoming harder to reach and harder to keep. Yet for most Americans, the Dream lies not in wealth, but in economic security, pursuing one's passions, and looking toward the future. Chasing the American Dream provides us with a new understanding into the dynamics that shape our fortunes and a deeper insight into the importance of the American Dream for the future of the country.

This thought provoking book is divided into two parts. The first looks at the ideas that lie at the heart of the American Dream. Those who believe in them and those who do not usually argue fruitlessly across an enormous and unbridgeable gulf. Part Two examines the effects that the ideals of freedom and equality have had in particular areas of American life and their implications for future change. They have particular pertinence to those who wish to see their society become fairer, healthier, happier, more inclusive and more prosperous. Once the outlines of the fundamental morality of the American Dream are clear, the moral choice is not to abolish it but to include everyone in it, not to slow but to accelerate its precipitous spread among the peoples of the world through a wider and deeper understanding of its great promise.
