On  the last day of its week in Miami, searching for the New American Dream, Marketplace Morning Report visits exclusive Fisher Island, where people pay a million dollars for the slips where they tie up their $40 million yachts.

Host Jeremy Hobson learns that few of  Fisher's residents had money "fall from the sky" on them. Most of them worked for it, says a real estate agent who sells homes there, so the dream -- even the Fisher Island dream -- is still within reach.
