This chapter reviews the discussions that have been presented in previous chapters, including the concept of the American Dream. It considers the question of whether the American democracy will lead to another experiment that is needed to bring together prosperity and justice using new ways based on a generally different set of social priorities. It identifies the future prospects for American families and workers and discusses the neoliberal opportunity bargain and a new opportunity bargain.
