I always remember what Bernanke said about inflation when certain public figures were fretting about "hyperinflation" due to the recovery stimulus after the financial crisis.

Bernanke said something like, "the Fed has a lot of tools to deal with inflation."

In short, if inflation is a problem, the Fed can raise rates. They probably would like some breathing room above 0%.
