Are You an American Dream Sharer or Hoarder?

Your DGB for today is to uncover if you are a dream hoarder.

The excesses and atrocities of the American top 1 percent have been well documented. But did you know that you don’t have to be in the “Toilets of Gold” class to keep the poor from climbing out of poverty? The issue is opportunity hoarding by the upper middle class (top 20 percent) and it’s a serious problem in our country. There are real and tangible blockades to climbing the socioeconomic ladder and they don’t appear out of thin air. A book by Richard V. Reeves delves into this uncomfortable topic (find it on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Dream-Hoarders-American-Leaving-Everyone/dp/081572912X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1511964479&sr=8-1&keywords=dream+hoarding).
