LONDON, Sept 27 (Reuters) - Federal Reserve policymaker Charles Evans said inflation was a global problem when asked about the week's dramatic slump in the pound on Tuesday.
"I'm thinking about the U.S. economy and inflation," Evans, who heads the Chicago Fed, said at an event hosted by the OMFIF think-tank.
"I think that inflation at the moment is a worldwide problem and everybody's trying to deal with it."
On Monday another Fed policymaker, Raphael Bostic, had raised concerns that the dramatic slump in Britain's pound and a surge in its bond yields following new government spending plans could spill over and hit the U.S. and global economies. (Reporting by Marc Jones; editing by Harry Robertson)
