With the economy in the hampers, CreditDonkey reveals a new infographic illustrating the American Dream. The infographic sorts the facts and aspirations behind the American sense of being.


American Dream is alive and consumers are the greatest benefactors

CreditDonkey, a credit card comparison website, unlocks the American Dream in its latest infographic, "Catching Up with the American Dream". According to a recent survey by Gallup, 44% of Americans continue to struggle. The CreditDonkey infographic illustrates our values and aspirations for financial security, home ownership, family, and leisure.


With homeownership holding steady at over 65 percent through the recession and 70 percent of graduating high school seniors planning to attend higher education, most indicators suggest a rosy outlook for the American Dream. Yet, Americans at all income levels are feeling uncertainty, with only 37 percent feeling financially stable, according to First Data.

"Americans are feeling left behind," said Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey. "But the statistics show the American Dream is alive and consumers are the greatest benefactors. Even among households below the poverty line, 98.2% of them have television, 64.5% have a washing machine at home, and 50% have computers."
