Economic Indicators

Last week I bought the domain econdicator.com (economic + indicator) for the express reason of creating a site for cataloging all the economic indicators I keep reading about. I haven’t gotten around to it yet (and may not), but I quite enjoyed this roundup of 15 indicators from sex to NASCAR. In summary: An economic crisis has brought more sex and babies, less lipstick, more pantyhose, more beer, smaller college endowments, a bankrupt but more tourist-friendly Iceland, fewer divorces, more people eating spam, less recylcling, fewer company holiday parties, more people buying used cars, cheaper sports tickets, higher paid free agents, more psychic predictions, fewer NASCAR advertisers and less plastic surgery. (Oh, and as I mentioned on Twitter last week, more stubble.)
