JWT Intelligence recently interviewed Erin Currier of the Pew Center on the States about the economic mobility of Americans. According to Currier: “One of the most popular definitions Americans use to describe the American Dream is their children being better off than they are. And that is inherently what we are looking at when we study economic mobility. It is how people are moving up and down the income ladder, over their life, and then across generations. So the way we are measuring people’s opportunity is also the way we know Americans are defining the American Dream, in large part.”
