Write a 500-word response that examines one argument position related to the American Dream in the United States:

American Dream A Myth
Reeves and Krause: Raj Chetty

To what degree, do you think the American Dream is possible in the United States? Why? 
To what degree, do you think the American Dream is possible for certain groups? Why? 
To what degree, does social class play in obtaining the American Dream? Why?
