Abstract

American Dream and China Dream have become the most important two terms, for they reflect the culture of America and China, the two leading powers in the world. The two dreams are greatly influenced by many cultural factors. Therefore, the authors try to make a contrast between them in terms of their origins, development, goals and ways to realize the goals as well as the status quo and then summarize their characteristics and experiences in the hope to offer enlightenments for the improvement of American Dream, the total realization of China Dream as well as all the people’s desire for good things in the future.
