The University of Miami and Northern Trust welcome:

Fareed Zakaria
Global Thinker, Journalist, and Best-Selling Author

to speak on:

Is the American Dream Out of Reach?
The shifting global economic landscape has placed new and powerful pressures on the average American. And now a subpar-turned-floundering recovery in the U.S. and much of the developed world is creating new risks for the whole economic system. Fareed Zakaria describes these pressures and risks and analyzes whether governments have the capacity to make the changes that societies need to survive and flourish. Americans have assumed that hard work and a good education lead to good jobs, rising wages, and secure retirements. Is this a realistic prospect for the future or a dream?

About Fareed Zakaria:

A CNN anchor, contributing editor at The Atlantic, and columnist at The Washington Post, Fareed Zakaria is widely respected for his thoughtful analysis and ability to spot economic and political trends. Esquire magazine described him as “the most influential foreign policy adviser of his generation.” Born in India and educated at Yale and Harvard, where he received his PhD, Zakaria became the youngest managing editor of Foreign Affairs at 28. He was the editor of Newsweek International from 2000 to 2010 and editor-at-large at Time from 2010 to 2014. Zakaria serves on the board of the New America Foundation. He has won numerous awards, including the Deadline Club Award for Best Columnist, a National Magazine Award, two Overseas Press Club Awards, and the Padma Bhushan. His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Slate, and other leading publications. Foreign Policy magazine named him a “Top 100 Global Thinker.”
