“…(perhaps) we live in the time of the ‘New Superb’, where yesterday’s mediocrity is today’s excellence…”

PITTSBURGH (September 4, 2015) – In the shadows of the scare from China and with the scenery of the ‘New Normal’ around us, we stare at a reality that challenges our definition of the American Dream: that we live in the time of the ‘New Superb’, where yesterday’s mediocrity is today’s excellence…complete with lowered expectations for your children, extended timelines for your retirement, and economic limits on the middle class and aspiring Americans.”

Host and political commentator Lenny McAllister coins the term, the “New Superb”, as a perspective that is taking over the narrative concerning the state of the American economy and the American Dream during this “Starting Point” commentary.
