3Make a women's cut please!  Jun 04, 2014 By Jennifer Day
Th interview was great and I'd wear the message on my chest... but not in a baggy men's cut. Please make a ladies' version!!

1No women's sizes!  Jun 03, 2014 By Satsimran Kaur
Really! I was looking forward to wearing this. I'm really surprised you forgot that more than 1/2 of us are women.

5Great idea, especially for policy wonks  Jun 25, 2014 By Donald G. Marshall
Stephen Colbert advertised these shirts when he had Thomas Piketty on his show. The formula is Piketty's thesis: return on capital exceeds the economy's growth (the result is inevitable inequality--the rich get richer). Not many people will recognize it, so it should be a great conversation starter--unless inquirers' eyes glaze over when you explain what it means! The shirts are nice quality. There was an error in shipping (one was sent instead of the two I ordered), and it was a very long wait to contact the supplier (32 minutes by the clock!); but they corrected the blunder right away, so no hard feelings. Check them out ( for various interesting t-shirts and other stuff.

3Just Not Worth The Money  Jun 21, 2014 By Alvin Steingold
Item arrived on time but shipping slower than expected. This is a novelty item, well made but simply not worth the big bucks charged. Save your money. There are cheaper ways to make a statement and less expensive ways to get someone to ask you what "r>g" means.

5good quality but ambiguous message  Jul 12, 2014 By David Deaven
Shirt material is high quality. And the "r > g" is easily readable.

Now to decide: am I wearing it to celebrate high return on investment, or to protest the world economy, or to lobby for higher taxes? Too many possibilities!
