Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist to Speak about Destruction of Middle Class

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University hosts Hedrick Smith, Pulitzer prize-winning author of Who Stole the American Dream?, on October 24.

Smith will be speaking before students and faculty from 11-12:30 p.m. and again from 12:30-2 p.m. in Boyd 144.

His book is an eye-opening account of how, over the past four decades, the American Dream has been dismantled and we became two Americas. Smith documents the transfer of $6 trillion in middle-class wealth from home-owners to banks even before the housing boom went bust, and how the U.S. policy tilt favoring the rich is stunting America's economic growth.

Smith reveals how pivotal laws and policies were altered while the public wasn't looking, how Congress often ignores public opinion, why moderate politicians got shoved to the sidelines, and how Wall Street often wins politically by hiring over 1,400 former government officials as lobbyists. Smith offers ideas for restoring America's great promise and reclaiming the American Dream.

Smith will be speaking to students at 11 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m. There are some seats available to the public. If interested, register at go.plymouth.edu/HedrickSmith

Smith is a Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter and editor and Emmy award-winning television producer/correspondent who is one of America's most distinguished journalists. In 26 years with The New York Times, Mr. Smith was a member of the Pulitzer Prize-winning team that produced the Pentagon Papers series. In 1974, he won the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting from Russia and Eastern Europe.
