Rise in men's underpants could mean improving economy10/10/2012
Nothing says "ca-ching, ca-ching" to economists like a boost in sales of tighty whities. And by that measure, it looks like the United States might be on the road to recovery at last. A market research company has reported a 6 percent jump in men's underwear sales in the last year, which, bizarrely, could indicate the economy is improving. The peculiar forecasting tool is a real thing that originates from the economist Alan Greenspan, who once used men's undies sales as a means to gauge the country's economic health. In this context, it's the rare occasion where that rise in a man's underpants indicates he's contributing to the good of society. [Source]
