The New American Dream

From a Ted Talk by Courtney Martin lives in cohousing in Oakland CA:

> QUOTE OF THE WEEK <http://ted.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=07487d1456302a286cf9c4ccc&id=0a9ba8d66a&e=806aa27566>
> “
> The ‘new better off,’ as I’ve come to call it, is less about investing in the perfect family and more about investing in the imperfect village, whether that’s relatives living under one roof or just a bunch of neighbors who pledge to really know and look out for one another. It’s good common sense, right? The most reliable wealth is found in relationship.”

I think The New American Dream is probably the best description of cohousing. It is enticing, familiar, and not too literal.
