The meetings reportedly involved Stanley Fischer, a former Fed vice chairman and president of Israel Bank, and a senior Treasury Department official.
Stanley Fischer to serve in role that gives him a powerful perch to help shape US monetary policy.
A separate vote, still unscheduled, must be held to confirm Stanley Fischer's appointment as vice chairman of the US central bank.
Fischer is widely expected to win Senate approval, both as a member of the Fed's Board of Governors and as the central bank's No. 2 official.
The Fed is the Evil Empire, Bernanke and now Yellen are the Emperor, and Fischer has assumed the role of Darth Vader.
US president says former BoI governor is ‘widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading and most experienced economic policy minds.’
Source familiar with matter says man credited with guiding Israel’s economy through difficult waters has already been offered US job.
"The Bank of Israel has succeeded in moderating the real estate market, but a strong response on the supply side would be preferable."
If it turns out that Stanley Fischer continues to pull the strings at the Bank of Israel by telling his successor what she ought to do, she will suffer for it.
