Men's Underwear Index (MUI)


Yes, that’s a theory in economics which says that the number of underwear bought and sold at a market is an indication of how an economy is doing. This theory (sounds crazy to me) contends that there is a higher probability of men buying more underwear when the economy is healthy and conversely they are more likely to resist the urge when the economic condition is bleak. Sounds true though, right? Since these items are basic necessity some economists must have been tempted to base their theory on the underwear. Don’t laugh at me now; spare you laughter for the economists.
 

How many underwear did you buy this month or this year? Come on now, I am just curious as to know how Bhutanese economy is doing. I don’t buy the fact that when it comes to underwear men are crazy and it is like they have to buy it by any means. I believe women are crazier when it comes to undies. Some go to the extent of skipping meals so that they save enough to buy new and colorful items. Well, that’s an exaggeration by the way. I am just kidding. But you must accept the fact it is not men alone who go crazy.

How true is it for you? Ideally how many underwear should a man or a woman possess at one point in time? Obviously it is not a luxury, I know. And there are people who utilize the ones they are wearing to the last thread until they buy replacements - because that’s the least visible portion of their feature.

But on the serious note, I am truly surprised how a man can teach other men in the simplest terms some of the complex economic situations. The world economy is said to be fast improving, but the recent economic recession seemed to have taught us ample lessons. Hopefully, the world makes the best out of it. But for the undies – make constant effort to change them before they stink.

Folks, that’s all for now!
