Economist Aldo Ferrer dies

Economist and former economy minister Aldo Ferrer has died today at the age of 88. Politically related to the Radical Party, Ferrer earned a vast public service career.

He was named economic policy attaché to the Argentine Embassy in London in 1956 and in 1957 co-founded the Argentine Association of Political Economy. Following the progressive UCRI's victory at the polls in 1958, the new Buenos Aires province governor Oscar Alende named Ferrer economy minister.

During Fernando de la Rúa’s presidency, he headed the National Commission of Atomic Energy.

Ferrer was named editor-in-chief of Buenos Aires Económico, a local business and current affairs daily, in 2008, and in December 2010, he was appointed Ambassador to France by former president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

His written work includes "A History of Globalization" in 1996 or "From Columbus to the Internet: Globalization in Latin America" (2000). In the same year, he founded the Fénix Group NGO.
