T-Shirt Lady

...ISDS 4160 Name: Eric Cook What’s in the talk of The T-Shirt Lady for the company of your choice? In the video, the T-shirt lady introduced her book named “The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy”. She shows the global travel the T-shirt has taken. The first step in her journey was the cotton fields of Texas. Technology and subsidies means that a lot of cotton is grown right here in America. Then the cotton gets graded through a very scientific process and shipped to China. In China, the state-run factories must cope with producing for a market not a quota. They get help from the workers, who despite having limited mobility feel very happy to work in a factory over a farm. This is similar to the long-gone British and American textile industries. Coming back to America, the shirt encounters many tariffs and quotas. Despite promising free trade, the politicians have developed thousands and thousands of laws regarding textile imports. However, when she is done with her shirt, it finally encounters a free market in the highly competitive fabric recycling industry. Globalization and free trade are controversial issues that cannot be seen from just one side. The T-shirt lady clearly states that globalization benefits the allocation of resources, increase income, world output, and variety of goods and is essentially good for the consumer. Although globalization is not the immediate response or salvation for the poor and less developed countries in the world. I recognize......

...general sense, air conditioning can refer to any form of technology that modifies the condition of air (heating, cooling, (de-)humidification, cleaning, ventilation, or air movement). However, in construction, such a complete system of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning is referred to as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC -as opposed to AC).[2] B. Heater 1. Principles of Air Conditioning BASIC PRINCIPLES OF AIR CONDITIONING You don’t have to be an air-conditioning expert to use Spot Coolers, but understanding the basics of air conditioning will help you understand how Spot Coolerswork. This section highlights some of the basic principles of air conditioning for those who would benefit from additional knowledge in this area. PRINCIPLES OF COOLING Heat Transfer Heat is a form of energy. Every object on earth has some heat energy. The less heat an object has, the colder we say it is. Cooling is the process of transferring heat from one object to another. When an air-conditioning system cools, it is actually removing heat and transferring it somewhere else. This can be demonstrated by turning on a Spot Cooler and placing one hand in front of the cold air nozzle and the other over the warm air exhaust. You will feel the action of the transfer of heat. SENSIBLE AND LATENT HEAT There are two forms of heat energy: sensible heat and latent heat. Sensible heat is the form of heat energy which is most commonly understood because it is sensed by touch......

International Cotton Trade- the Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy

...The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy The opening of this story begins with an organized student protest at Georgetown University, where author Pietra Rivoli, who is a professor of finance and international business, is watching the students arguing statements. This immediately captures my attention as it begins to describe a common characteristic of a major University that I live near and attend many events at. The University’s organized peaceful protest allowed the public speaking through protesting on the topic of the evils of big corporations and the explanation of how these big corporations, Globalization, The World Trade Organization (WTO) and the international Monetary Fund (IMF) are exploiting workers all around the world. One speaker alluding to “sweat shops” particularly caught the attention of the author by exclaiming, “Who made your T-Shirt”? This statement sparked Rivoli’s intrigue that is a great use of foreshadowing for what the story will lead to. The traveling of thousands of miles and across multiple continents to find out “who” really did make these shirts. We all wear our everyday cotton “tee’s” without giving a second thought about the journey each T-Shirt had to go through in order to make it here to the United States. This sets the foundation for the rest of the book and explains its purpose. The first stop in this journey isn’t on foreign soil where I expected the book to lead off, but rather here in the Continental United States at the......

Vendor Rating - T-Shirts

...Executive Summary For the existence of a company, it is important to make enough profit. To be successful and profitable, you must keep an eye on all costs and deliver good quality products. Also, a good relationship between partners can ensure many advantages. No Sweat has faced many problems during the last few months. For many reasons, the current supplier has been pushing for higher prices for the production for No Sweat. Also the number of mistakes of the supplier has increased noticeably. This is worrying! No Sweat must search quickly for a new supplier, because if they continue this way, they would make lots of loss and also create a bad reputation. Last month we were approached by No Sweat to do some research. As a professional marketing team we have done some new researches for choosing a new supplier. We are determined that our advice will help No Sweat. Firstly, we have selected four potential suppliers from different countries. These suppliers are: Manifattura Milano SpA, from Italy (current supplier) Giysi Adam Olun, from Turkey Drebes Padara Sieviti, from Latvia Yifu Xi Ye, from China Secondly, we have compared them by using five important criteria. We have rated al the criteria separately and finally we have chosen one new supplier.

The Travels of T-Shirt

...The Travel of T-Shirt “The Travels of a T-Shirt in a Global Economy” by Pietra Rivoli is a wonderfully creative book about protectionism and global trade. Pietra Rivoli is a professor at Georgetown University. One day she attends an on campus anti-globalization rally. A protester confirms the evils of globalization by asking “Who made your t-shirt?” Rivoli, a classically trained economist, is unsure of her t-shirts origins and she suspects that the protester is too. Soon thereafter, she purchases a t-shirt in Florida and decides to chronicle its life, from creation to destruction, and this book was born. She gave world trade a face by tracing the life of her t-shirt. The t-shirt begins as cotton grown in the US, then it is made to thread in Asia, woven into fabric in the US, sold in the US, and then recycled or sold again as second hand clothing in Africa. The t-shirt enters its first free market in third world countries as mitumba, or used clothing donated by people in wealthy countries. It was an interesting journey and Rivoli’s style makes the story entertaining. Through her discussion of the t-shirts life, I grew disgusted with the rampant protectionism surrounding the US textile industry. Rivoli describes how cotton is subsidized and tariffs are levied against imported raw cotton and imported textiles. In addition, there are quotas for textile imports. Although Rivoli maintains a balanced perspective on protectionism and globalization throughout her book,......

The Traveling T-Shirt

...combination of ingenuity, mechanization, agriculture research and command of the value chain. One must also not forget to factor in America’s history of free and cheap labor though slavery and sharecropping which gave the American cotton farmer a huge head start over foreign competition. Today, The U.S. government plays a major role in the farming industry. American cotton farmers have a large competitive advantage over their foreign counterpart due to government subsidies. Government subsidies guarantee US farmers a minimum of 72.24 cent per pound of cotton. This is almost double that of the global market for cotton, which in 2004, was at 38 cents per pound. The government also requires America based clothing factories to purchase a certain percent of their cotton from American farmers. In addition to subsidies, there are programs that ensure farmers against weather losses, specialized loans, and grants to help to farmers develop new technologies, all to ease the minds of farmers so they “don’t lose too much sleep”. In 2004, government support to farmers was about three times what The Agency for International Development requested at $4 billion dollars. So what would happen if all the Auggie Tantillo and his troops (aka dinosaurs or protectionists) were to go extinct, and in with Julia Hughes? In other words, in the absence of distortions from government regulation, what would happen? What would a truly free market in the cotton industry look like? The scope of this......
