There are ‘Strange Signs the Economy is Improving.’ According to this infographic, we may finally be getting over the recession hump and moving on to a more prosperous period.
One good sign is that men are buying underwear again. In economic downtimes, men generally avoid buying underwear. Underwear sales are on the rise, which can only mean that men aren’t being as stingy.
Another important thing to note is that more couples are breaking up. Divorce is expensive so during bad economic times, couples who don’t even like each other are more likely to stay together just to avoid financially instability. Even facelift procedures, which are considered a luxury expense, plummeted during the recession, but are now rising quickly.
