Friday Poll and Comment Forum: Is Home Ownership Still Part of the American Dream?

If fewer Americans by percentage own homes, is owning a home still part of the American Dream?

Three quick assumptions: (1) there is an American Dream, a set of goals most people in this society have, (2) that set of goals includes (or included) home ownership, and (3) those goals may be common even if they don’t matter to everyone. (Some people will decide against homes or cars, for example, even if they could buy one.)

So, what do you think?

I’ve a poll and forum for comments below. The post will remain open until Sunday morning. Comments will be moderated against profanity and trolls; otherwise, have at it.

  1. It’s harder to achieve now but can still be done The next generation will wait to buy getting a home will be an even bigger goal than it is now

  2. It’s not dead despite terrible times Worst since depression: Yes Dead: No
    Go Brewers!!!!

  3. Kinds of homes may be different (in smaller sizes), but home ownership will stay a goal. It will take a while before home buying bounces back, though.
