Moskowitz Prize judge Pietra Rivoli's new book, The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy, was one of six shortlisted for this year's FT/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award. Today's Financial Times includes an excerpt from the book and some quotes from Pietra (link here, but subscribers only...).
Some other links:
- Last spring NPR did a series of reports based on the book, including a cool map.
- Here is a transcript of a presentation Pietra gave to an audience at the IMF.
- You can read an excerpt from the book here.
If you have a financial background, I'd also strongly recommend the paper Pietra did with Georgetown colleague James Angel in 1997. There is a brief but good plain-English article on the study on page 5 of this issue of Georgetown Business magazine.
