Crunchy Evidence

Postby Slava » Tue Oct 23, 2018 12:33 pm

I saw this in an Economist article. A new one to me, but I understood it right off the bat. We crunch numbers and data, so they must be crunchy or crunchable. I like this one and hope I get a chance to use it someday.

Would you please provide the sentence for context or at least a link to the article?

Found it:

Sentence: Crunchy evidence on sanctions is hard to come by.

Link: Benefit Sanctions.
