Charles Coquelin (25 November 1802 in Dunkerque – 12 August 1852 in Paris) was a French economist.

He wrote on the banking sector in his "Dictionnaire de l’économie politique" and "Le crédit et les banques".[1] He also wrote in the Revue des deux Mondes on the linen industry in Britain and France.[2] During the 1870s Léon Walras criticised Coquelin's ideas on competition in the economy.[3]
