Harald Ricardo Beyer Burgos (born April 2, 1964) is a Chilean economist. He served as Minister of Education of Chile from December 29, 2011[2] to April 17, 2013 when he was impeached because of his failure to address for-profit activity in universities (which is illegal).[3] He is now executive director of the Centro de Estudios Públicos, a right-wing think tank in Santiago under the presidency of Eliodoro Matte.
