Episode 457: Why Pink?

A mockup of the colors of the Planet Money t-shirt.

We're making a t-shirt that tells the story of its own creation. Part of that story is how we chose the colors.

On today's show, we'll explain what the color of our women's t-shirt has to do with this painting from 1969, and we'll tell you how unfinished buildings halfway around the world are shaping what we see on store shelves right now.

You only have three days left to get your very own Planet Money t-shirt. Our Kickstarter page has all the details.

Music: April Smith and the Great Picture Show's "Colors." Find us: Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr . Download the Planet Money iPhone app .
