Fischer does not rule out IMF job


May 31, 2011 | 10:19 am

Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer did not rule out accepting the position of managing director of the International Monetary Fund should he win the election.

Fischer made the remarks Tuesday during an address at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev as part of its 41st Annual Board of Governors meeting.

“All of the press has been very nice to read compared to what is usually in the Israeli press, but, when I was job hunting at MIT, the professors there taught: ‘Don’t accept a nomination you haven’t been offered yet,’” he said.

Nominations for the position vacated by Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who resigned after being arrested in New York City and charged with the sexual assault of a hotel maid, will be accepted until June 10.

“I will say this: I really love this job. We’ll see what happens,” Fischer said.
