FOX Business Network (FBN) Senior Correspondent Charlie Gasparino reports that BlackRock CEO Larry Fink is telling people that former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner could be the next Federal Reserve Chairman.

Tim Geithner



Excerpts from the report regarding Tim Geithner are below.

On who might be the next chair of the Federal Reserve:

“There is a lot of talk about who might be the next Fed chairman. [BlackRock CEO] Larry Fink is saying it could be [former Treasury Secretary] Tim Geithner. He’s not a bad choice, he ran the Treasury Department and BlackRock is very close to the Treasury Department. Fink is telling friends on the street not to rule out Geithner.”
