Episode 36: The American Dream
Today we’re talking about having it all. Virginia divulges her dream: to write the a great self-help book that praises failure rather than success. We talk about all of the perils of the modern work world: salaries and job hopping, companies and employees, Gen Y, outsourcing, the decline of pensions and Social Security, loyalty to employers, and the recent recession. Then we speculate about whether the American dream is actually the American trap. Finally, we complain about the stock market.
