That is a very good point. It is looked highly upon to earn your own wealth and status on your own, however, The Great Gatsby seems to argue that in the end they are not truly successful. The novel is saying that established wealth is the most stable in America, so the American Dream of building up your wealth from nothing will most likely end in failure. Therefore, The American Dream will forever stay a dream, and won't become reality.

This is a really good point. I think there is an American paradigm that we treat everyone equally. This take on Fitzgerald's view of wealth seems really accurate to the book.
