Chicago Fed President Charles Evans in Indiana

  • It's time to return to more conventional monetary policy
  • Risks to outlook are balanced, fundamentals are solid
  • Dot plot shows mildly restrictive rates in 2019, 2020
  • Doesn't see inflation rising to level that tests 2% goal
  • Sees inflation rising quite a bit over the next few years
  • Rate projections quite normal, given jobless outlook

Evans was dovish for a long time but has been shifting to the other side and is hawkish here.
