It seems like U.S. Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, has found his trusted partner in solving the eurozone crisis.

In a new report made by the Think Thank Bruegel, the president of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, is the person he calls.

The study has counted the number of conference calls made by Tim Geithner (publicly available in his calendar) and it shows that, apart from the International Monetary Fund, Mario Draghi is the person he calls to most often.

You can see the study on the think thanks website.
