In Great Gatsby, Nick introduced Tom “Her husband, among various physical accomplishments, had been one of the most powerful ends that ever-played football at New Haven — a national figure in a way, one of those men who reach such an acute limited excellence at twenty-one that everything afterward savors of anti-climax. His family were enormously wealthy — even in college his freedom with money was a matter for reproach —", it shows that Tom was a spouse to Daisy, and Tom didn’t work all his way to be rich, but his parents did.

This concept of the American dream is not real for many people who immigrate here and Lila lets Raul know this during the trip.

We really first start to see foreshadowing to this theme in the second Chapter with George Wilson and Myrtle Wilson, one making a living as a mechanic/gas station operator, the other making money by being in an affair with Tom respectively. This brings to mind how the American Dream of fortune can’t always be brought around by hard work, in the case of George. Later on in Chapter 4 the reader learns about Gatsby’s plan to win Daisy back through his show of wealth and social power. Daisy, being the ultimate symbol of success for Gatsby, is his goal that has been for so long out of reach. Next in the 5th Chapter, Gatsby starts an affair with Daisy.

At the end of the journey when only Raul and Lila arrive in America, Raul 's father is not waiting and their first steps on American soil are weak stumbles. The film ends on an abrupt note with their arrest and leaves their ultimate fate unknown, mirroring the uncertainty that generations of immigrants have felt when arriving in the United

The sale of RJR Nabisco involved a long and dirty battle but, in the end, KKR won the right to take control of the food and tobacco giant in the greatest leveraged buyout ever.
