Economic Mobility and the American Dream

There are two ways of measuring economic mobility: absolute and relative. Each offers an understanding of the health and status of the American Dream; however, neither measure can be taken in isolation for a complete picture of economic mobility in our country. This video animates the difference between these two measures.

  1. Thanks for the informative post. I think that economic mobility is one of the most important factors that affects the health of the country. However, many people come to United States in search of American dream and I think that it will never change. Into my opinion, American economy is quite healthy and prospering. Yes, there are people living through Quick And Easy Loan Service, but most Americans are middle class people who can afford to buy own house and have well-paid jobs.
