America’s Self-Made Man : A 5 page paper discussing just what the American Dream is. It has nearly always been measured in terms of wealth, but not necessarily in terms of dollars.

The American Dream is still alive, but it has been replaced in the eyes of many by a sham, by that counterfeit that says that money is the only true measure of the worth of a man.
