The Kidnapping of the American Dream | Brian Mac Mahon | TEDxUCIrvine

When Brian Mac Mahon arrived to the United States to pursue the business success which many before him have sought after, he realized something that rocked his entire understanding of the term "The American Dream". Could it be that succeeding at the American Dream is dependent more on connections with rich institutions, rather than the hard work of creative individuals? In his talk, Brian deconstructs the concept of the American Dream and discusses his proposed solution to an imperfect system. Brian Mac Mahon is currently the CEO of Expert DOJO, the largest training academy for entrepreneurs in Southern California. Throughout his career Brian has lived in over 35 countries gathering business and entrepreneurial experience along the way. This experience has helped form and contribute to his passion of finding creative and effective ways to increase the success rates of entrepreneurs. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Revitalizing the American dream: Rodney Byrnes at TEDxIndianapolis

Revitalizing the American dream: Rodney Byrnes at TEDxIndianapolis

Rodney Byrnes talks about how poverty is killing the American Dream for 46 million adults and 16.1 million children. Even worse, half of those children live in concentrated poverty, where most 3rd graders read below grade level; homicide rates are 12 times higher; and their prospects for healthy, successful lives are threatened. What role can real estate developers play in breaking the cycle of poverty? How can multifaceted real estate development be used as a tool to revitalize the American Dream in the most distressed neighborhoods? Byrnes is Vice President, Real Estate Development at Strategic Capital Partners. Rodney's primary focus is urban development projects including the Avondale Meadows Revitalization Project in Indianapolis. He holds a BA in Environmental Science and Public Policy from Harvard University and currently sits on the boards of Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc., YMCA of Greater Indianapolis and Park Tudor. His talk explores how the cycle of poverty has been broken with a special approach in several communities nationwide by tackling systemic issues: replacing concentrated poverty with high quality mixed-income housing, seeding high performing schools; and providing wrap-around services to families in need.

The new American Dream | Courtney Martin

The new American Dream | Courtney Martin

For the first time in history, the majority of American parents don't think their kids will be better off than they were. This shouldn't be a cause for alarm, says journalist Courtney Martin. Rather, it's an opportunity to define a new approach to work and family that emphasizes community and creativity. "The biggest danger is not failing to achieve the American Dream," she says in a talk that will resonate far beyond the US. "The biggest danger is achieving a dream that you don't actually believe in."
