In the United States, economic policy uncertainty, based on media coverage, fell in December, after rising for three months in a row. This drop can probably be attributed in part to the anticipated Federal Reserve rate cuts and the hopes that they are raising.

In December, American companies reported less uncertainty about their revenue growth, after a stagnation in November. This decline is probably linked to the generally favourable economic data published in November.
