Those in search of the American dream should move to Canada, according to Ford Foundation president Darren Walker.
“That American dream as we know it, which was the envy of the world, is no longer the envy of the world,” Walker said on “Squawk Box”.
“In fact, the United States has fallen behind other industrialized nations in terms of economic mobility. If you want the American dream today, you ought to move to Canada.”
Walker oversees the international philanthropic organization founded by Henry Ford’s son, Edsel, in 1936.
The Ford Foundation focuses on social justice and has an endowment of $13 billion, distributing more than $600 million annually in grants.
