Campus Speaker on Globalization of Textiles

An announcement via e-mail:
The Marquette Economics Association
The Center for Global and Economic Studies
Professor Pietra Rivoli, author
The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy
Wednesday, February 14th
3:00 p.m.
Conference Center, Raynor Library
(reception to follow immediately afterward)
It seems the next big push by the campus leftist activists is some sort of “anti-sweat shop” policy at Marquette (so that the people who feel self-righteous drinking “fair trade” coffee can feel equally self-righteous about wearing sweat shirts and t-shirts sold by Marquette).

We don’t know whether we will agree with Rivioi in toto (unlikely), but her view will doubtless be much more nuanced and realistic than the prevailing anti-sweat shop moralism.
