Discusses the state of the American economy, the consequences for politics and culture that might arise from the new situation, and possible solutions.
Abstract: Stanley Aronowitz addresses issues that "increasingly plague most Americans," like the questions: "Are there real shortages of food, oil and other basic commodities?" "What consequences for American foreign policy may result from competition between America's need for agricultural resources and energy and the demands of other countries?" and "Will Americans accept deterioration of their living standards?" Food, Shelter and the American Dream discusses the reasons for the reversal in the fortunes of the American economy, the consequences for politics and culture that might arise from the new situation, and possible solutions.
