Your Call 071609 Can we green the American Dream?

Can we green the American Dream? On the next Your Call we speak with John Wasik, author of The Cul-de-Sac Syndrome: Turning Around the Unsustainable American Dream. Wasik, a personal finance columnist for Bloomberg, sees the sub-prime mortgage crisis as the first of a wave of problems we'll see as the dream suburb of the 1950's dissolves. Too far away, too expensive, too wasteful. What's next? Send us an email at or join us live at 11 am. Is freedom and independence possible when you never own your own piece of land? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.
