Introductory remarks from Ambassador William vanden Heuvel.
Hedrick Smith, the Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter and editor and Emmy award-winning television producer/correspondent, is one of America's most distinguished journalists. In Who Stole the American Dream? Smith knits together political and economic developments and significant shifts in American capitalism under the last six presidents and combines penetrating profiles of corporate and political leaders with close-up reporting on the experience of average Americans to show how seismic changes, sparked by a sequence of landmark political and economic decisions, have transformed America.
