T-Shirt in a Global Economy (Rebroadcast)


A T-Shirt in the Global Economy (Rebroadcast) Join us as we follow the fascinating journey of a single t-shirt through the global economy. Professor Pietra Rivoli has studied such a journey in her attempts to understand and explain how our global economy works. The path a single t-shirt makes from raw material, to manufacturing, distribution, retail and into a consumer's hands can tell us a great deal about how the economy works. Professor Rivoli is in town for a lecture at UNC Charlotte but first she joins us to share her insights. Guest Pietra Rivoli - Assoc. Professor, McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University Since this is an encore presentation, we won't be able to include your comments.
