Introduction

American consumer AbundanceFor over half a century, Americas soaring confidence had always promised a sugar-frosted future filled with frost-free fun and abundance. But that buoyant bubble of optimism has since gone bust. Along with out jobs, retirement funds and split level homes, the American Dream has gone into foreclosure.

This collection of vintage advertising and illustrations from the New Deal to the New Frontier offer a mirror to the once upon a time American Dream as presented in the can-do American media calculated to sell the American Way to the world …and to ourselves.
