Reverse Boycott of Denmark?

Yesterday, I got an email from a friend who is one of the top people at a major American financial institution. His is an idea worth considering.

Lew,

It seems that how the Danes are being harmed the most is through an Islamic boycott of their goods.

The number I am hearing that they are losing in global sales is a million dollars a day. Which is a lot in absolute terms, for you and me, however their economy is chugging along at 400 million dollars a day, so less than a percent in relative terms.

However there will likely be a few bankruptcies that would not otherwise have occurred that do occur.

So maybe a way to help the Danes is to see what products are being boycotted the most and get the word out to buy these goods. Sort of like a Berlin airlift in reverse.

Perhaps the product to buy would be Lego's or something.
