The United States is taking serious, unnecessary risks by not extending more federal aid to out-of-work households, Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans said on Thursday, as reported by Reuters.
"More fiscal relief needed amid large potential hole in aggregate demand as prior aid expires."
"People, businesses in minority neighbourhoods have borne unfair, outsized burden from the pandemic recession."
"Inclusive recovery difficult until we've made sufficient progress in controlling the virus."
"Seeing inequalities deepening the longer the pandemic, recession continue."
"Fed is committed to using full range of tools until confident economy on track to full employment, stable inflation."
These comments don't seem to be having a significant impact on the USD's performance against its rivals. As of writing, the US Dollar Index was unchanged on the day at 94.35.
