Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer is reportedly off the list of candidates to replace Paul Wolfowitz as president of the World Bank. Fischer, a former vice president of development economics and chief economist at the World Bank, had been mentioned as a possible successor to Wolfowitz, who resigned earlier this month amid a scandal involving a promotion for his girlfriend. Current lead contenders for the position reportedly are US Trade Representative Robert Zoellick and Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, Robert Kimmitt.
