Suze Orman Talks About New American Dream — ThirdAge
The author and host of a show on the Oprah Winfrey network says the new dream is about family and responsibility. Education and debt reduction are the most important items to save for, Orman says.

Orman chides those who look to have bigger and better items all the time.

“It’s a dream where you actually get more pleasure out of saving than you do spending,” Orman said. “It’s a dream where you live below your means but within your needs. You are not spending every penny, you are not impressing people. You are living a life where you can sleep at night and you are actually happy.”
