Panel 1. The American Dream. What has “The American Dream” meant in the past and what does it mean today? What promise could it hold; how could we make that promise a reality? What role should government play?

Panel 2. The Self-organizing & Sharing Society. Social networking apps like Uber, AirBnB, and TaskRabbit enable people to self-organize and share resources and skills in new ways. Who are the winners and losers, and what are the opportunities and obstacles? What might the future look like?
