Technology breakthroughs could actually revive the American Dream

Mike Walden is a Reynolds Distinguished Professor Emeritus at North Carolina State University and a regular contributor to WRAL TechWire. In a recent column for the online newspaper, he discusses the topic of his latest book titled RE-Launch that is available from Amazon.

The subtitle of the book reads as follows: “How Families Can Be Renewed and the American Dream Revived in the New Independent Lifestyle of the Post-Pandemic Economy.” Walden’s thesis is that with developments like telehealth and remote work, families that have been under both financial stress and time pressures could actually benefit from these changes and see their hopes renewed and the American Dream revived.
