bank-hapoalim-israelIsraeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and Finance Minister Yair Lapid finally agreed today to tap interim bank chief Karnit Flug, 58, to the top spot, after dickering for four months.

She was chosen to fill the shoes of Stanley Fischer who retired at the end of June, over three other candidates: economics professor Zvi Eckstein, former Argentine central banker Mario Blejer and former United Mizrachi Bank Chief Executive Victor Medina.

  1. Those of you who question her appointment,
    should perhaps learn a little bit about her,
    before you laugh at her just because of her
    name.
    I doubt if you guys are even trusted to make
    change from your Shuls pushka!
