Harvard University political scientist Robert Putnam at the 2015 Aspen Ideas Festival. In his new book, "Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis," Robert Putnam explores what's happened to the land of opportunity, and has some ideas about how to restore it. He says we're moving toward an America that none of us has ever lived in: where being rich, or being poor, is inherited. James Fallows of The Atlantic, moderator on July 2, 2015.
