Who Stole the American Dream? is a non-fiction book by the American author and journalist Hedrick Smith. It describes the consolidation of wealth in the United States, and the dismantling of the middle class.
As a result, the American Dream—a national ethos, or a set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward social mobility achieved through hard work—is becoming increasingly unattainable.
