USD: Trump administration forbids the use of certain words

By Kiran Najran December 19th, 2017

That two of these words are ‘science-based’ and ‘evidence-based’ shows the chilling nature of the instruction.

The rest of the week is a little busier and today we will see the building permits and housing starts for November. Tomorrow sees the release of existing home sales, while on Thursday we will see the US GDP growth rate for the third quarter.
