Fischer ‘Cagey’ on Succeeding Bernanke as Head of Fed

JewishPress Logo

Outgoing Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer dodged questions from the Financial Times on whether he wants to succeed Ben Bernanke as director of the Federal Reserve.

Fischer is quitting his job in Israel only two years after his second term started, and it has been widely speculated he wants to take a run for the job Bernanke will vacate next January, even thought it will take a special exception to hire him because he is already 69 years old.

He told the Financial Times he cannot “accept a job offer that no one has made.”
