Fed’s Evans: Need fiscal support to prevent structural scarring to economy


Fiscal support is needed to prevent a “structural scarring” of the US economy, Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans said on Tuesday, as reported by Reuters.

“We are not going to be concerned if unemployment rates go very low, as long as that’s consistent with 2% inflation,” Evans added and said that asset prices are expected to move up when real interest rates remain low.
