Argentina's Central Bank PurgeArgentina's President
Néstor Kirchner appointed Martín Redrado as the
latest head of the country's Central Bank. Redrado becomes the
fifth man to head the formerly independent Central Bank since
the eviction of Pedro Pou on the eve of the 2001 financial
crisis. Kirchner refused to renew the mandate of Redrado's
predecessor Alfonso Prat-Gay despite his success in reordering
the financial system, stabilizing monetary policy and building
bridges to the country's embittered creditors. Redrado has
spent much of the last 15 years flitting between public and
private sectors, but has nonetheless won a reputation for
personal integrity and effectiveness that is rare in government
service. Redrado, a Harvard-educated economist and founder of
think tank Fundación Capital, was head of trade
negotiations at the foreign ministry before moving to the
Central Bank. InBev Announces New TeamBelgium-based InBev,
