The Land of Opportunity
Election season is officially in full swing. With the conventions now a thing of the past, and the debates before us, nothing demonstrates America’s love of democracy and competition than the race for the White House. Regardless of which side of the political spectrum you fall on, the presidential race is a fascinating reminder of American culture and our entrepreneurial spirit.
The ideology of “If you can dream it, you can be it,” is something quite unique to the States, particularly the latter part of the statement. It is the basis of who we are and a concept introduced to us almost from birth. Whether our ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower, or if you are a first-generation American, being able to move fluidly through the social strata is the American dream.
While watching a documentary on pizza (of all things), one of the most notable differences in opening up a pizzeria in the United States rather than in Italy, was that American shop owners could hang their sign anywhere they wanted. Competition was welcome and may the best pizza win. As a result, many millionaires were born bringing their dream and pizza to whatever block they chose here in the United States. Meanwhile, if a pizzeria was on a block in Italy, that was its block for generations and competition was not permitted.
