Langoni died on Sunday in a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, where he has been treated since December. He was 76.
The economist, trained at the University of Chicago, headed the Brazilian central bank from 1980 to 1983 and was most recently director of the Fundacao Getulio Vargas, a university in Rio.
Langoni was also known for his closeness to the current Minister of Economic Affairs, Paulo Guedes. In a 2019 interview with Bloomberg News on the local economic outlook, Langoni described himself as an optimist.
“It has helped build the country’s economic stability and protected the institutional role of central banks in all economies,” the Brazilian Central Bank Council said in a statement on Sunday. “Langoni’s knowledge will certainly be missing in the economic debate.”
