Stan Fischer, the former Bank of Israel governor, is in line to take over the No. 2 slot at the Federal Reserve, according to media reports.
According to Bloomberg, Fischer has already accepted the vice chairman position from Obama. The Wall Street Journal described Fischer as a "dean" among the world's central bankers, and said he would stand as a "heavyweight partner" with Yellen as the Fed decides when and how to wind down it stimulus programs.
