Hedrick Smith: Who Stole the American Dream?

DC Area Association members are all invited to attend this great event to hear Hederick Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter and editor as well as Emmy award-winning producer/correspondent. Mr. Smith has established himself over the past 50 years of his career as one of America's most distinguished journalists. He states that “My book is loaded with plenty of compelling personal and political stories to illustrate my thesis, which goes on to say that we Americans will not get to a smart fix of our current economic predicament unless we truly understand the causes of our predicament and generate some systemic changes, drawing lessons from our own history.
