Bank of Israel gov eyeing Bernanke’s post

 

(JNS.org) Governor of the Bank of Israel Prof. Stanley Fischer, who will step down later this month, is not denying the possibility of vying for the top post at the U.S. Federal Reserve after the position becomes vacant in January. Fischer did not confirm or deny the possibility when he was asked about it in London last week, saying he “did not want to get into whether or not he would accept an offer,” the Financial Times reported. Fischer is a well-known figure in global central banking circles and was a professor for the current head of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
