Chicago  Federal Reserve bank  president Charles Evans on Tuesday noted that the downside risks to the United States’ (US) economy were stronger than upside risks. “Last week’s manufacturing report was not a good sign,” Evans added but said he was still optimistic on the US economic outlook, per Reuters.
