Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy
By Pietra Rivoli (Exploring Economics Units 8-11)
The author creatively and effectively uses the life story of a single common product, the T-shirt, to explore the many facets of globalization. She keeps the story on a personal level, interacting with people as diverse as Texas cotton farmers, Chinese factory workers, Washington lobbyists, and African used clothing merchants.
