Summary Box: Bernanke Gets Grilled On Inflation
GETTING GRILLED: Members of Congress sharply questioned Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke Wednesday over whether the Fed's policies are raising the risk of higher inflation in the months ahead.
SPOTTING RISKS: House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he is concerned that the Fed won't be able to detect inflation until "the cow is out of the barn" and inflation is already spreading dangerously through the economy.
THWARTING INFLATION: Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is confident the Fed won't let inflation get out of control.
