“If Americans Want to Live the American Dream They Should Move to Denmark!”

An eye-opening and data driven important TED talk from Richard Wilkinson, author of The Spirit Level, on how inequality harms societies.

Kelli in Herning DK recently gave her students an assignment to make a presentation on The American Dream. One of her friends in DK recommended this TED talk. I checked it out. It is really worth watching. I am off to buy his book. ;-)

Hi, my name is Dominik Schoonmaker. I am 17 years of age and I currently live in Copenhagen, Denmark. I have lived in America all my life untill 6months ago. My dad is in the Air Force so we move around alot and my dad got job here in Copenhagen. Ever since i have moved to Copenhagen ive really become to love Denmark and have become to really dislike America. I havnt paid an attetion to the politics or the election which are coming up soon. I go to the International School of Copenhagen and in my econmic class we were talking about inequalities and we were watching your video and when you said “If Americans Want to Live the American Dream They Should Move to Denmark!” I looked over to another one of my American collegues and we we both agreed with your statment.
