For generations, the American Dream worked: You could own a home that would increase in value; you could put your children through college; you could retire early enough for you to enjoy the fruits of years of labor. Today, all these expectations are under threat.

Personal finance guru Suze Orman says it’s time for a serious reconsideration of the American Dream. In THE MONEY CLASS: Learn to Create Your New American Dream, Suze delivers a master class on personal finance for this pivotal time in our nation. In this bracing and urgently needed new book, she issues a call to action, demands that we “stand in our truth,” and shows us how the landscape has changed and why a new approach is necessary. Suze points out both the pitfalls and opportunities of the current economic climate and sketches a path to security and control.
