Fed's Evans: Fiscal Policy Makers Must Help Boost Growth

Tuesday, 08 April 2014 07:06 PM

A U.S. Federal Reserve official called on fiscal policy makers around the world to do their part to boost growth because central banks in many economies are battling inflation that’s below target.

“We just need the right stimulative policies, and if fiscal policy could help provide that, then that would make all the accommodative monetary policies that much more powerful,” Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans said Tuesday at an International Monetary Fund seminar in Washington.

“It would lead to greater investment, more customers walking through the doors of all the stores that need that.”

Evans, who is not a voting member this year on the Fed’s policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee, made the remarks to journalists after he participated in an IMF panel discussion on the future of fiscal policy.
