Carlos Rafael Fernandez

Carlos Rafael Fernandez (born in 1954) is an Argentine economist and was, from April 2008 to July 2009, the President's Minister of the Economy.

A conflict between the National Customs Administrator, Ricardo Echegaray, and the head of the National Revenue Bureau, Alberto Abad, led to the dismissal of both and to Fernandez's appointment on March 18, 2008 as National Revenue chief. Following the 2008 Argentine government conflict with the agricultural sector, touched off by a proposed increase in export taxes, the economist's non-confrontational style helped lead to his April 25 replacement of the less conciliatory Martin Lousteau as Minister of the Economy.

The ruling Front for Victory's defeat in the June 28, 2009, mid-term elections led to a cabinet reshuffle, and Fernandez tendered his resignation to the President, effective July 7. He was replaced by Amado Boudou, Director of the National Social Security Administration (ANSeS). Clarin
