June 7 (Bloomberg) -- Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans said that “more accommodation would be good” for the world’s largest economy as the recovery stalls.

“We benefit from more accommodation anyway, even when the economy is growing at 2.5 percent,” Evans said today in a CNBC interview. “We can do better than that.”

The Chicago Fed chief’s comments echoed those from his June 5 speech at New York University, where he said “soft” U.S. economic data call for “extremely strong accommodation.”
