No way the Saudis are going to let an Israeli politician become IMF chief. He is wasting is time.

The only reason for Fischer not to seek this position is the age-old antisemitic stereotypes that Jews/Jewish money control the World.

Unfortunately, it is sufficient to read the comments in this talkback to convince oneself that these stereotypes are well and alive.

Fischer is an Ameerican…who also adopted Israeli nationality to become their chief central banker. He’s also too old for IMF to qualify for consideration. Indfia didn’t put up their candidate because he was +65yrs old. So, Largarde has no match for becoming DSKs successor.

A. Carstens is a North American, and has navigated Mexico’s finances through difficult maneuvers. He is currently not hampered by scandel as is the major candidate, but health concerns could hamper his candidacy. He seems the best qualified candidate of the limited field.
