STOCKHOLM, May 3 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve might have to aim for inflation above 2 percent to achieve its 2 percent target, a top policymaker at the central bank said on Friday.
"We had too many undershoots for quite some time. We're symmetric and that means even if it's going to go back up to 2 (percent), because it's unsure, maybe we should aim for 2.25 percent to get to 2 percent," Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans said in Stockholm.
The U.S. Federal Reserve held interest rates steady on Wednesday and signaled little appetite to adjust them any time soon, taking heart in continued job gains and economic growth and the likelihood that weak inflation will edge higher.
