The neoliberal economist referenced with Menemism and one of Javier Milei’s first advisors on this matter, announced through the social network X (formerly Twitter) his decision to end all advisory relationships with Libertad Avanza. The departure from him, after giving an interview that caused repudiation for his homophobic expressions, occurs in the midst of name changes and possible new appointments within the Mileist Cabinet with former Macrista officials.
Carlos Rodriguez was one of Javier Milei’s first advisors, he was part of the small economics table, but recently he had been relegated. Just like he mentioned in his post.
He is an economist from the University of Chicago, a former Menem official, who shared Milei’s team of closest advisors along with Menem’s former Economy Minister, Roque Fernández, and Emilio Ocampo.
The latter, the main ideologue of the dollarization plan, was also “removed” from the presidency of the Central Bank. In his place would be Demian Reidel, a man close to Federico Sturzenegger, who was also confirmed this afternoon to head the Ministry of Modernization. This name change is considered a turning point both in Rodríguez and in the rest of Milei’s “old” circle, in favor of Macri and his officials.
In a second part of the text published by Rodríguez, the economist explained that “I have not been consulted in months. I had made the decision a long time ago. Today is the optimal moment since Javier appointed the Minister of Economy and changed the President of the BCRA. Now the house is in order.”
