Save The Economy: Buy Scotch Tape On ‘Purple Tuesday’ (Dec. 9)

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The sagging economy is a real sticking point, but one man believes it can all be solved just by purchasing Scotch Tape on December 9.

Jon Bailey is urging his fellow Americans to buy as much Scotch Tape as possible – enough to last three or four years – on what he calls “Purple Tuesday” (Dec. 9) in hopes of building confidence in the economy.

He figures if enough people purchase tape, there will be a noticeable blip in sales and the bean counters and media analysts who have been “beating a drum of negativity” about holiday sales will be forced to explain the big boost.

Most likely, the experts will interpret the increase in tape sales as a sign that, contrary to media reports, Americans ARE actually spending money this holiday season.

Although Bailey doesn’t own stock in Scotch Tape, he predicts his sticky scheme will help businesses and consumers get it together.

He admits it might sound silly, but says the tape day is no more ridiculous than the hype around Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
