The US Federal Reserve has adopted new rules banning its policymakers and senior staff from buying individual shares and a number of other investments; Donald Trump announced plans to launch a media technology business that is set to go public after it merged with a Spac on Thursday. Plus, Turkey’s central bank has defied warnings from the business world and opposition parties by slashing its main interest rate despite rising inflation and an ailing currency; short-seller Hindenburg Research has set its sights on Tether and launched a $1m “bounty” programme for information on the stablecoin company at the centre of the global cryptocurrency market.
