    Introduction

    The United States of America nowadays holds leading positions in the most important parts of business, economics and scientific

    explorations in the western world. A country that inspired many appellations – “Land of Opportunity”, “Melting Pot”, “God’s country” is still referred to people as a land of

    superlatives - “the richest”, “the greatest”, “the most”. The American’s style of life, which is based on the idea of realization of the American dream, becomes more and spread all

    over the world. America’s culture, formed not long times ago, has already extended along many countries.

    The Russian Federation is not the exception as during the period of the last 16 years Russian traditional culture has changed

    much because of Western one.

    After perestroika, when the borders became opened

    and the Western civilization burst into our country, many Russian people began taking the style of life and habits of citizens of foreign countries and adopting

    them to ours. The greatest influence had the USA. Many young people were impressed by the original and sometimes inadmissible for a soviet citizen way of life in America, by the

    wealth of American citizens, by their rights and freedoms. They wanted to reach the same prosperity and that’s why they began spontaneously copying different aspects of American

    culture. This brought lots of pluses: the people became more determined and ambitious, they got acquainted with modern techniques, and people got the opportunity of communicating with

    foreigners that broadened their outlook. That was the useful influence, bur there was also the bad one.

    Very often young people couldn’t take right from wrong that lead to very unpleasant consequences. In the 90’s there was a rapidly

    increasing number of addicts, AIDS sick persons, teenager’s pregnancies and crimes.

    Nowadays the situation in Russia is not the same, but the problem of Western, especially American influence is still actual.

    In my work I will find out the core of the term “American Dream” and will find out the possibility of its realization in nowadays Russian

    reality. I will also compare the perspectives on life and interests of young Americans and Russians in order to find out if they are common or not.

    I .The American dream like a social phenomenon

    American Dream is a subjective term usually implying a meaningful, successful and satisfying life. This term usually implies financial security and material comfort, but

    can also imply a dream of fame, exceeding social, ethnic, or class boundaries, or simply living a fulfilling life. Perceptions of the American dream are usually framed in terms of

    American

    capitalism

    , its associated

    meritocracy

    , and the freedoms guaranteed by the U.S.

    Bill of Rights

    The term is not easily defined, and has subjective meaning to many who claim it. The American Dream is often associated with

    immigration

    , as the dream of religious freedom, economic prosperity, and meritocracy has historically driven immigrants to the

    United States

    . The term is used by many modern Americans to signify success in life as a result of hard work (as in, \"living [or pursuing] the American Dream\").
