Economist's - Rules to work by!
May 18, 2011 08:39AM
Reading the paper tonight I glanced the side stories to read a series of economists rules, that truly gave me a "Lion sized grin"

The Men's Underwear Indicator (MUI)
Former US Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan was a fan of this and He allegedly created the MUI while a consultant (These guys have way to much time and money on there hands)
The theory goes that men are predictable (hold on ladies) when it comes to buying tightey-whiteys so any sales movement can be tracked. He notice that when the economy was booming, men's underwear sales increased but dropped when it wasn't, as men retain their underwear for longer!
