Chicago Fed president Charles Evans provided a wide range of comment on economic issues. But the overall tone was dovish. He noted that more policy accommodation is possible if needed while at the same time saying he is not sure it is needed. He sees lower oil prices benefiting the consumer sector but a stronger dollar challenging manufacturing somewhat. He sees inflation risks on the downside with slow wage growth notable. Evans sees policy on a meeting by meeting basis.
