Brazil names new central bank head, eyes reforms

New Brazilian Finance Minister Henrique Meirelles speaks during a press conference in Brasilia on May 17, 2016Brasília (AFP) – Brazil’s interim government on Tuesday named economist Ilan Goldfajn as the new head of the central bank, a key post in the fight to coax the giant economy out of recession.
